City Crews Prepare for Snow and Rainfall


(Saint John, NB) The City of Saint John’s snow removal crews will be out in force this evening and overnight to keep City streets as safe as possible during the forecasted storm. Citizens are reminded to avoid travelling during the storm and to take advantage of available off-street parking, where possible.

City staff will be working within the Winter Management Plan to meet the established service objectives, once the storm ends, according to Priority and based on the storm severity. Major arteries, highway connections and emergency routes will be cleared constantly during the storm, with major bus routes, and streets connecting schools, community centres and business districts as the second priority.

Crews are also preparing for rainfall and snowmelt. As part of the City’s Winter Management Plan, Municipal Operations crews inspect catch basins in known trouble spots on a weekly basis to ensure they are open and ready to handle any run-off.
