Following the approval of Common Council, several sections of the City’s Traffic By-Law have been updated.
The Traffic By-Law regulates the motoring and pedestrian traffic within Saint John. Items covered in the by-law include parking restrictions, traffic flow regulations, school zones, speed limits, pedestrian areas and other regulations.
Listed below are important changes effective immediately in coordination with on-street regulation signage:
- No stopping at any time on University Avenue travelling eastbound from Millidge Avenue until the first break in the centre median (an approximate 30 metre distance).
- The speed limit will be reduced from 60 KM/H to 50 KM/H.
- Traffic lanes will reduce from two to one lane in each direction.
- A dedicated bike lane will be added in both directions.
School zone speed limits:
- All current 40 KM/H school zone speed limits will be reduced to 30 KH/M.
- A new school zone speed limit of 30 KM/H will be established for Divine Mercy Catholic School.
Alternate side parking:
- Existing Alternate Side Parking regulations for streets located in the North, East, and West of the City will now only be in effect between December 1 – May 31 each year.
- Tartan Street will become an Alternate Side Parking street, also in effect between December 1 – May 31 each year.
