Saint John Water is advising motorists of ice build-up on two streets on the City’s east side caused by service leaks. The intersection at Bayside Drive and the Causeway is very slippery and ice covered and one lane is closed. Michael Crescent between Mark Drive and Cindy Lee streets will be closed while repairs to a valve causing ice build-up are carried out.
