Winter Storm Update

21-Jan-2019

January 21, 2019 | 8am
 
Road and sidewalk conditions are extremely icy and there are a number of abandoned vehicles across the City. For your safety, please stay off the roads if possible, and avoid all flooded areas.

There is a flash freeze warning in effect for our area today. Crews are currently working to salt and sand Priority 1 streets and will work in sequence from there.
 
Saint John Transit
Saint John Transit services are currently suspended. An update will be given at 11:00 a.m.
 
Garbage Collection
There is regularly scheduled garbage collection today. However, collection is expected to take longer than usual, and the sequencing of routes may be different as some areas are easier for trucks to access. Any areas that crews have trouble getting to today will be added to tomorrow's pick up.
 
City Closures
Saint John City Hall, administrative offices and other non-essential services will be closed until noon today. This includes the Saint John City Market and City-operated arenas.

Foster Thurston remains closed to all traffic from Ashburn Road to Sandy Point Road (near the zoo).
