Please note that work has begun toward the deconstruction of the former RCMP forensics laboratory building located 3151 Oxford Street. You will notice increased activity, however construction crews will be accessing the property from Oxford Street only and have been directed not use other streets in the neighbourhood. Fencing has been erected around the building and crews will soon start working on removing the interior. The deconstruction of the building itself will begin in early July after schools in the area have been let out for the summer. Every effort will be made to minimize inconveniences to the community. This work should be completed by the Fall. For safety reasons we kindly ask that residents keep at a distance from the construction area. Should you have any questions or comments please write to us at info@planoxfordhfx.ca.
