(Saint John)-All available City of Saint John crews and equipment are working to keep City streets and sidewalks safe for motorists and pedestrians during today’s storm.

Please keep the conditions in mind and slow down. If possible avoid travelling the roads during the height of the storm.

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.

Residents are reminded that winter parking rules are in effect. On-street parking is not allowed in most of the city between December 1 and March 31 from midnight to 7 a.m to allow for safe and efficient plowing of city streets. Some streets are exempt. Signs on exempted streets tell citizens where parking is allowed
