Major Road Renovation Project Beginning In May

City crews will be spending the summer and part of the fall fixing a stretch of road in the North end. 

A major infrastructure project on Douglas Avenue between Bentley and Clarendon will see parts of the existing watermain and sanitary sewer renewed, a new wastewater lift station and storm sewer installed and some repaving done.

Municipal Engineer for the City of Saint John Kevin O'Brien tells CHSJ News the underground infrastructure in is poor shape and needs to be upgraded. O'Brien says there will be traffic interruptions but it's their goal to maintain at least one lane of traffic so people living in the area still have access and a rep will be on site at all times.

The project is scheduled to start in May and be completed by the end of October.
