This summer the City of Saint John and its contractors will begin work on the Somerset Street Reconstruction Project.  This project includes the installation of a new storm sewer, repairs to the existing sanitary sewer, and road reconstruction consisting of a new curb, sidewalk, and asphalt surface. 

Work will take place in three phases from Samuel Davis Drive to Wellesley Avenue.  Residents in the area may experience noise and dust, while motorists will experience significant traffic detours.
