Halifax Regional Municipality will be holding an open house Thursday night to discuss Herring Cove Road.

Over 15,000 vehicles a day use the long artery running through Spryfield, including several Halifax Transit buses.

The councillor for the area, Steve Adams, says organizers are looking for feedback from the local community.

"What their experiences are with Herring Cove Road, whether they're cycling, walking or by vehicle, and help to shape the future of Herring Cove Road for years to come," he tells The Rick Howe Show.

A news release from HRM says the route "lacks a consistent vision in terms of how it should look and function."

Adams says there's already a draft plan in place for the road, but they want to hear input and ideas from those living in the area.

"We're going to use this as the basis and then our residents have an opportunity to comment on that," Adams explains.

The event goes Thursday, Jan. 10 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Captain William Spry Community Centre's multipurpose room.

There will be no formal presentation. Instead, attendees will have a chance to check out display boards and ask questions.

A follow-up open house is scheduled on Thursday, Feb. 28.
