Spring Street Sweeping Program Begins


The City of Saint John spring Street Sweeping Program will begin this week, April 20. Residents can expect to see crews cleaning the sand and debris from our streets and sidewalks over the coming weeks. This work will be carried out in a phased approach and under all safety recommendations and directives from public health officials.

Motorists are asked to continue to adhere to alternate side parking requirements and any temporary No Parking signs that are installed ahead of street sweeping efforts. The safety of our residents and crews is a priority. As crews and large, slow moving pieces of equipment may be out after dusk, we remind motorists to drive with caution and slow down around work zones.

The Street Sweeping Program is a vital program to improve the function of our streets, sidewalks and storm water systems as well as the appearance of our City. As per the City’s sweeping management plan for streets and sidewalks, only streets containing curb, storm water catch basins and designated bicycle lanes will be cleaned as part of the scheduled sweeping operation.

We appreciate the support from our community as crews work hard to keep our City clean. If you have any questions about the City’s Street Sweeping Program, please contact Customer Service at 658-4455.
