City of Saint John crews working to make City safe during storm

20-Jan-2012

The City of Saint John reminds citizens to drive safely, or to avoid travelling if possible, during today’s snow storm.

Municipal Operations crews are clearing snow, as well as salting and sanding roads and sidewalks for the duration of the storm. Crews will continue to clear and salt until roads and sidewalks meet the service objectives as set out in the Winter Management Plan. Motorists should find off-street parking where possible to allow plow operators a chance to clear the streets.

Motorists are reminded that the Winter Overnight Parking Restriction is in effect and that vehicles parked on the street between midnight and 7 a.m. may be subject to ticketing and towing. No Snow Ban has been called for the South-Central Peninsula.

Streets and sidewalks will be plowed according to priority. Major arteries, highway connections and emergency routed will be cleared constantly, with major bus routes and streets connecting business districts as the second priority. Residents are reminded that subdivision streets may not be cleared of snow until after the snow has stopped to allow major arteries to be maintained.
