Traffic Advisory: Rothesay Avenue


Motorists are advised of the following traffic interruptions:

Streets: Rothesay Avenue from Thorne Avenue to McLean Street

Date: Tuesday, May 1, 2018 – Saturday, June 30, 2018

Time: 24 hours/daily

Duration: 8 weeks

Direction: Port City Water Partners will be closing the eastbound lanes on Rothesay Avenue, from Thorne Avenue to McLean Street.

Motorists travelling eastbound on Rothesay Avenue will be merged into one of the two westbound lanes. The other westbound lane will remain open. This traffic deviation will effectively reduce Rothesay Avenue from four lanes to two lanes in either direction.

On occasion, traffic will be slowed in both directions, allowing for the installation of new water services on Rothesay Avenue.

Specific Area: Rothesay Avenue from the intersection at Rothesay Avenue and Thorne Avenue through to McLean Street.

Access: Businesses within the construction zone are open and will remain accessible to the public while the work is underway.

The road will also remain accessible to emergency service vehicles and local area residents.

Description of Work: Port City Water Partners will be resuming construction work to rehabilitate the existing water transmission mains, as part of the construction phase of the City of Saint John’s Safe, Clean Drinking Water project.

Motorists are advised to plan their travel accordingly, reduce speeds in construction zones, observe signage, and drive safely. Work commencement and completion times are subject to change. Weather permitting.
