Construction of a New Cell Phone Lot

June 10, 2024 – Halifax International Airport Authority (HIAA) intends to make a determination regarding whether carrying out the project is likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.  To help inform this determination, the HIAA is inviting public comments until July 9, 2024


The HIAA intends to construct a new ‘cell phone lot' at the Halifax Stanfield International Airport in the existing landscaped area surrounding the Tim Hortons property located at 311 Bell Boulevard. The project will also include a new shared driveway between Bell Boulevard and the adjacent Tim Hortons property, as well as the potential for a new double drive-thru arrangement.  The approximate area of the maximum, new combined paved areas is expected to be approximately 5,000 m^2.  Infrastructure to support the parking lot and driveway will include buried storm drainage, and power and communications utilities within and around the pavement limits.
