As we enter into what is going to be a heavy construction season, the City of Saint John will once again post all traffic advisories on a single, dedicated “Traffic Advisories” page on www.saintjohn.ca.  

We encourage citizens, including media and those who have previously received individual notifications through social media or email, to visit 
www.saintjohn.ca to stay informed of all City-wide traffic notifications. 

In the event of a road closure that may cause a serious or prolonged interruption to traffic, an individual notification may also be issued. 

The City’s Weekly Construction Update, which includes major road and infrastructure projects as well as work being done as part of the Safe, Clean Drinking Water Project, will continue to be published on the website under “News” at the end of each week. 

Outside of construction season, traffic advisories will be issued as individual notifications.
