Police say a man is dead after he was struck by a vehicle at a construction zone in the Halifax region.

The RCMP say the fatal collision happened at worksite along St. Margaret’s Bay Road in Queensland.

A 62-year-old man from Dartmouth died at the scene.

“An RCMP collision analyst attended the scene to collect evidence resulting in the road being closed for several hours,” a release by the RCMP stated on Friday.

The Nova Scotia Department of Labour is also conducting an investigation.

"The department has been made aware of the incident. Our Occupational Health and Safety Officers have responded to investigate and determine whether there was a violation of the OHS Act or regulations," said Department of Labour spokesperson Lisa Jarrett.

"That's all the information I can share at this point."
