Motorists travelling to eastern portions of the city are advised there will be significant delays especially during the morning and evening peak hour commute.
Rothesay Avenue eastbound lanes will be closed from the Marco Polo Bridge to Reserve Street. Traffic will be detoured to Thorne Avenue to Russell Street. Old street car lines were discovered and must be removed from the site in order to proceed with Harbour Clean Up work. Thorne Avenue is also reduced to one lane in both directions at this time for infrastructure upgrades. Work in this area is expected to last on this site for up to two weeks.
Motorists are encouraged to take Route 1 where possible, and to consider alternate transportation methods and travel times.
The City of Saint John thanks you for your patience as we work on these and other Harbour Clean Up projects.
