City crews working to meet service objectives under harsh conditions

03-Mar-2011

Municipal Operations crews are working to meet the service objectives laid out in the City of Saint John’s winter management plan.

The last storm ended on Monday at approximately 11 p.m. Priority 4 (local and subdivision) streets should be clear to bare pavement at the centre line by 11 p.m. Friday night to meet the objective laid out in the plan. Bare pavement at the centre line means that the main part of the street is clear of snow and ice.

Priority 3 (collector streets, minor bus routes, industrial parks) streets should be clear to bare pavement on the travel lanes by 11 p.m. this evening to meet the objective.

Municipal Operations crews are working with limited resources due to the difficult nature of this winter’s storms. As well, the constant operation of equipment due to the many snow storms the City has experienced this winter has caused some failures. Crews are working to repair equipment and will work to clear each road of remaining ice and snow as soon as possible. Please be patient as we strive to meet our service objectives.
