Winter Information


It is illegal to dump snow on highways in New Brunswick
When people clear their driveways by pushing snow onto highways, it can cause serious traffic hazards. It’s against the law to put snow or any obstruction on a highway. Fines range up to $2,500. Please don’t dump snow on the road! 

Do you own a Rural Mail Box and/or Civil Address Number?
During snow plowing operations, Department of Transportation and Infrastructure crews do their best to avoid damaging or disturbing rural mail boxes and civic address numbers. Should damage occur the department assumes no responsibility.

ATTENTION: Snowmobilers and Winter Enthusiasts 
The New Brunswick Department of Transportation and Infrastructure wishes to notify the public of the year round operation of ferries at the following locations:

St. John River at Evandale, Kings County
St. John River at Westfield, Kings County
Belleisle Bay at Belleisle, Kings County
Kennebecasis River at Gondola Point, Kings County

The operation of ferries necessitates the maintenance of open channels on these waterways. Persons operating snowmobiles and other winter pleasure craft and equipment are encouraged to exercise care when in these areas.
