Public Information Session: Sydney Street (St. James Street to Queen Square North) – Street Reconstruction

During the 2024 construction season, the City of Saint John will be undertaking upgrades to the water mains, sanitary and storm sewers, and roadways along Sydney Street from St. James Street to Queen Square North.

The project generally includes the replacement of water mains and sanitary sewers, the installation of new storm sewers, and existing services to each building up to the property lines will be renewed. Roadway reconstruction on Sydney Street will include the installation of gravels, asphalt, concrete curb and sidewalk, landscaped medians, and trees. The project will also include active transportation and traffic calming measures including bike lanes and curb extensions.

This project is part of the City’s on-going commitment to continually improve its infrastructure and is included in approved City of Saint John Water and Sewerage Utility Fund and General Fund Capital Programs. This project is partially funded by the Integrated Bilateral Funding Program.

The project is anticipated to begin in mid-April 2024 and is expected to be completed by mid-September 2024. Prior to construction another notice will be distributed to inform residents and business owners of the actual construction start date. Although there will be water interruptions and delays on traffic, it is our intent to keep these inconveniences to a minimum.

Representatives from the City of Saint John and the project design team from CBCL Limited will be available to answer questions related to the project.
