The week-long state of emergency in St. John’s will officially come to an end at 6:00 a.m. Saturday.
The city issued the notice Friday afternoon.
“On behalf of Council, we thank the public for their cooperation and patience throughout this emergency. I continue to encourage residents to stay home if you can and to drive with extreme caution as we transition away from the State of Emergency,” said Mayor Danny Breen.
“My biggest concern is for public safety. Although we have lifted all restrictions outside of the parking ban, many of our residential and collector streets have yet to be widened, and the sidewalks around school zones are still being worked on.”
Metrobus will also return to city streets on Saturday, though the city notes a number of detours will be in place. Free rides will be offered on Metrobus and GoBus until February 7, in an effort to keep cars off the roads while the remaining snow is cleared.
Mayor Breen will hold a press conference at 4:30 p.m. with further details.
