City crews continue salting as freezing rain creates icy conditions

For immediate release: November 8, 2019 - 10:09am

Environment Canada issued a Freezing Rain Warning early this morning, anticipating rain to continue periodically until noon today.  

Freezing rain creates icy road conditions in temperatures below zero and drivers and sidewalk users should use caution moving around Saskatoon today. Overnight, City crews applied salt to prevent icing on high-traffic priority streets, and 16 sanders continue today treating ice with salt.

When safe to do so, drivers can report icy locations to the 24-hour Customer Care Centre at 306-975-2476 or email
