SAINT JOHN, N.B.- City crews are tackling snow packed streets around Saint John today.

 

The city’s Municipal Operations Commissioner says plows and clean up equipment were out in full force at 7 this morning, once the storm was officially declared over.

 

Kevin Rice believes yesterday’s storm was more severe than last weekend’s. “The effect that, not only with the mount of snow with the high winds, we also had a heavy wet snow layer that was at the road surface that is causing us some issues with anchor ice and the ability to clean up the streets.”, says Rice. “We are facing some major challenges”.

 

An overnight snow parking ban has been declared for the South/Central Peninsula, starting at 11 o’clock tonight.

 

Six snow ban parking lots have been cleared for use by on-street parking residents beginning at 6PM
