As the City of Saint John continues to focus on finding ways to enhance the livability of our city, we are seeking public input into the proposed Main Street Active Transportation Project. This project will transform Main Street and the Viaduct to improve access and safety for walking, cycling, and transit on Main Street. The City is asking for public feedback through an online survey on Shape Your City Saint John.
The quick survey will help the City understand what changes residents would like to see and how they would use the newly designed Main Street as a transportation route. The survey will be open from June 27 – July 15, 2022.
The proposed project will include:
- Two of the six vehicle lanes converted to active transportation (i.e., cycling, walking) and more green space.
- A reduced speed limit.
- Protected bike lanes and shared bike/pedestrian spaces.
- Traffic calming measures at pedestrian and cyclist crossings.
- Improved Transit stops.
- Enhanced centre median to expand the Marigolds on Main project.
All those interested are invited to fill out the survey here. Should anyone not have access to the survey online, paper copies are available at the Customer Service Centre in City Hall.
More information can be found by visiting www.shapeyourcitysaintjohn.ca, including conceptual design drawings, photos and a Council report outlining the project.
