Road conditions are deteriorating as the snow continues to fall in the greater Saint John area.

Streets and roads are snow packed and slippery with visibility significantly reduced.

Police have been advising extreme caution – slow down – leave plenty of space between you and the vehicle in front – and make sure your vehicle and windows are completely clear of snow before heading out – if you must.

Saint John Transit is cancelling service within the hour due to road conditions.
