ORIGINAL POST:
For residents of Salisbury: Bleakney Road will be repaired following a storm Dorian-related collapse/washout at the McNaughton Brook culvert. The Salisbury Works Department and Salisbury Fire Rescue were called to the scene Sunday morning. It is hoped that Bleakney Road will become passable again by Sunday afternoon. Until that is the case, the Albert Trail (via Lam) has been opened for access so residents of the subdivision can get in and out during the repair process (west to Fredericton Road being the more suitable of the two directions on the trail). Drivers are asked to exercise caution as Albert Trail is not traffic-controlled and is primarily one-way traffic.

Hurricane Dorian

Hurricane Dorian is expected to make landfall near Halifax Saturday evening, proceeding on a track to the eastern Gulf of St. Lawrence on Sunday as a powerful post-tropical storm. Much of New Brunswick, including Salisbury here in the southeastern region, is under a Tropical Storm Warning, a Rainfall Warning, and a Wind Warning issued by Environment Canada/Canadian Hurricane Centre. This means there is a threat of local flooding from heavy rainfall. Total rainfall amounts of 50-100 mm are expected throughout southern and eastern New Brunswick before the rain ends overnight or Sunday morning. Tropical storm force winds gusting to 90 km/h can be expected.
The New Brunswick Emergency Measures Organization (https://www2.gnb.ca/content/gnb/en/departments/emo.html) offers the following advice:
- People need to be able to meet their needs for at least three days. A 72-hour preparedness kit is essential (https://www.nbpower.com/en/outages/preparing-for-outages/). 
- People living or working in coastal areas should remain vigilant about the threat posed by waves and storm surge. This is not the time for recreational boating.
- Again, localized flooding is a potential threat. Homeowners should make sure their gutters are clear and guiding water away from the home, and should also make sure catch basins and roadside storm drains nearby are clear of debris.
- Once the storm begins, avoid non-emergency travel.
- Drivers should avoid roads covered by water. Water may be deeper than it appears and may conceal sinkholes or other damage and debris.
- High winds are likely. Objects that could blow away and become potentially dangerous projectiles, such as lawn furniture, should be secured or taken inside.
- Power outages are possible (https://www.nbpower.com/Open/Outages.aspx). Residents who have a generator should make sure they have sufficient fuel and that it is in proper working order. Those who have a generator but have never used it are encouraged to read the instructions on how to operate it safely.

Traffic Advisory

The New Brunswick Department of Transportation and Infrastructure, along with the Village of Salisbury, wishes to advise the travelling public that construction on Route 112 in Salisbury may cause traffic delays. DTI will be paving a 1.3-kilometre section of Route 112, also known as Fredericton Road. The Village of Salisbury will also be doing work on sidewalks (the existing sidewalk will be extended to Twilight Avenue). Construction is expected to last until October 18th. The department apologises for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciates the public's patience.

Salisbury Primary Health Care Office

New Brunswick’s Horizon Health Network has officially announced the opening of the Salisbury Primary Health Care Office. Located at Salisbury Pharmacy at 3154 Main Street and staffed by Nurse Practitioner Jaelle Poirier and Administrator Krista Ogilvie, the office is open two days each week with a mandate to serve residents of the region who are currently without access to a primary health care provider; that is, a family doctor or nurse practitioner. Potential patients must register in advance via Patient Connect NB, which can be accessed by phoning Tele-Care (811) or visiting Tele-Care online (https://www2.gnb.ca/content/gnb/en/departments/health/Hospital-Services/content/Patient_Connect_NB.html). Patients are seen on Mondays and Fridays between the hours of 9:00am and 4:00pm by appointment only, while Tuesdays will be administration days. There will be no after-hours or walk-in appointments offered. In a press release, Kathleen Buchanen, Horizon’s Director of Primary Health Care for the Moncton Area, says patients who have registered with Patient Connect NB “are being contacted and the reception has been positive.” Horizon Vice President Community Jean Daigle notes that “none of this would have been possible without the collaboration from the Village of Salisbury.” Nurse practitioners are trained to diagnose and treat common acute health problems, monitor and manage chronic diseases, and prescribe diagnostic testing, medications, and other treatments.
