2010 Summer Construction Projects

In order to provide effective service delivery, the City must maintain and upgrade its road, water and wastewater infrastructure. In 2010, the City of Saint John is investing $9.6 million towards storm sewer and street upgrades; $2.4 million for the City’s annual asphalt maintenance program; and up to $44.2 million for improvements to water and wastewater systems and facilities.

The Province of New Brunswick and the Government of Canada have also funded projects where noted.

Asphalt Resurfacing

The Roadway Maintenance Service provides drivers with safe, functional roads and maintains road accessibility through all seasons. In order to achieve the maximum service life from City streets, they must be resurfaced on a regular 12-15 year cycle. The top 40mm layer of asphalt is scraped off and then a layer of asphalt is applied. Money for these projects comes from the City’s general operating budget.

Street Reconstruction

Street reconstruction is also part of the Roadway Maintenance Service. The life of a street can be extended by paving, but eventually streets need to be fully rebuilt. This involves removing the old asphalt, replacing material below and installing new concrete curbs and sidewalks where required. The street is then re-paved. Money for these projects comes from the City’s capital budget.

Saint John Harbour Clean-Up is about good health, clean waterways and quality of life. City of Saint John wastewater treatment and collection systems, through Wasterwater Service, are being enhanced to protect people, the environment, and to help sustain the economy. There are two main projects: building the Eastern Wastewater Treatment Facility and building a collection and pumping system to move all wastewater to one of three treatment facilities. Harbour Clean-Up is funded equally by all three levels of government under the Canada Strategic Infrastructure Fund (CSIF) program. In 2012, 100% of system users will have treatment.
