Update: City clean-up efforts

09-Sep-2019

All roads are now reopened. Only Fundy Drive remains impacted by a fallen tree. This should be reopened to the public by noon today.

Today's focus will be to start the clean-up of debris that has already been cut up and pushed to the side. Once this is complete, crews will assess any compromised trees and determine if they need to come down. From there, efforts will move into parks and public spaces.

Crews are also assessing other infrastructure damage, such as roads and sidewalks. A work plan will then prioritize the repairs and reinstatement of any damaged infrastructure.

Safety is the number one priority during the clean-up effort. Residents are reminded of the following safety precautions:

Use good judgement and proceed with extreme caution around any area that has fallen trees or other obstructions. Do not try to salvage, walk under or climb on trees or lines that have fallen. Keep children a safe distance away;

Saint John Energy urges the public to stay at least 10 metres from fallen lines as they may be energized;

Motorists should reduce speeds in areas where crews are working. Do not drive around any barricades.
