The Saint John City Market pedway upgrades continue: Restricted Stairway Access


Restricted Stairway Access;
will reopen upon project completion (June 2016)

On Wednesday, April13th, the stairway between the second level of the Brunswick Square pedway and the Saint John City Market was closed temporarily while overhead work was performed in the area. The stairway will remain closed until project completion, June 2016 and will tentatively reopen on Friday June 24th.

Access to the Market will be maintained via the Germain Street entrances and Market crews will work to ensure that outside areas around the Market are clear.

Directional signage has been installed and community stakeholders and market vendors have been notified of the closure.

The full closure of the entire pedway entrance, including the stairs is expected to take place periodically while major equipment etc. is installed until the anticipated project completion at the end of June. Alternate entrances to the Saint John City Market will be identified and marked at that time.  The public will be notified in advance.

The Saint John City Market will remain open, as per its regular business hours, for the duration of the construction period. For more information, visit

We thank citizens and visitors for their patience during this time, and look forward to unveiling the newly renovated, accessible space this summer.
