Saint John Police Force monitoring construction zones this summer

15-Jul-2011

The Saint John Police Force will be working with City of Saint John Municipal Operations and Engineering to keep an eye on construction sites this summer.

For eight weeks beginning July 18, the Saint John Police Force will be assisting Municipal Operations crews in monitoring work zones around the city. As crews make the best of the good weather to finish construction projects, motorists can expect delays and detours around the City. For the safety of the workers in those construction zones, construction signage and markers (including traffic cones) are used to move traffic away from the site of the work. Motorists should proceed with caution through construction sites and obey the directions of any flaggers directing traffic.

Saint John Police will be assisting at high-risk sites throughout the summer. Tickets may be issued for violations relating to construction zone safety.

The City of Saint John reminds citizens to be aware of the City workers on the streets this summer and to proceed with caution for their own safety, as well as the safety of our workers.

For more information, please contact Municipal Operations at 658-4455.
