During construction season, residents can help reduce traffic congestion by exploring flex-time at work, taking vacation during busy construction periods, walking, biking, carpooling, using transit, allowing extra time to complete errands, and reducing or combining trips across the bridge, and around town.

Improvement Projects 2021

The City of Fredericton categorizes their construction projects into the five categories below. 

Major Infrastructure Projects

Major infrastructure projects are infrastructure renewal projects that impact major roadways, and last for several months.  These projects may have impacts on nearby businesses and commuter traffic. These projects often involve the replacement of buried pipes that are at the end of their usable life. Major Infrastructure projects are also coordinated with roadway and active transportation renewal projects and upgrades. Combining underground infrastructure fixes with needed road work means that the City shouldn’t need to return to perform upgrades for 20 years or more.

Major infrastructure projects for 2021 include:

  • Regent Street (Queen Street to King Street)
  • Union Street (Gibson Street to Station Road) - Visit our Engage Fredericton for more information on the Union Street project. 
  • Brookside Drive (Hawkins Street to Rose Court)
  • Odell Roundabout (Waggonners Lane and Rookwood)
  • Maple Street (Douglas Avenue to Wallace Avenue)
  • Saint Marys Street (Two Nations to City Depot)
  • Canada Street (Hollybrook Street Daulphin Drive)
  • Wilsey Road (Hubbard Road to Hilton Road)
  • Queen Street (Officers’ Square frontage)

Neighbourhood Infrastructure Projects

Neighbourhood infrastructure projects are typically infrastructure renewal projects on residential streets, and they last for several months. These projects don’t usually impact businesses or commuter traffic but do impact area residents. Most often, these projects involve the replacement of buried pipes that are at the end of their usable life.

Paving & Roadway Projects

Paving and Roadway Projects include asphalt milling and resurfacing work, changes to curb alignments, sidewalk renewal and improvements, and traffic and pedestrian upgrades. These projects generally involve phases of work where traffic may be impacted for shorter durations, but roads remain open.

Trail & Park Projects

Trail & Park Projects include infrastructure renewal such as improved parking at our local parks, resurfacing projects such as foot bridge decking or trail paving, improved access within parks including bridge and trail installations and complete renovations of existing parks such as officer square.

Off Street Infrastructure Projects

Off Street Infrastructure Projects involve infrastructure work that is not happening within a public roadway. This work typically has no impact on adjacent roadways, sidewalks or commuters any usually involves the replacement/renewal or upgrade of municipal infrastructure.
