You can expect delays in your travels through-out Greater Saint John as the Olympic flames gets handed around. Sargeant Jeff LaFrance is head of the City Police Traffic Division and says they will begin their escort of the flame on the Old Rothesay Road.

Duke through Prince William Street will be closed to traffic between 4:30pm this afternoon and nine o'clock tonight. Also a reminder that there is no parking on Water Street throughout the evening. Ironically, Sargeant LaFrance was a torch bearer for the 88 Winter Olympics in Calgary.
