COVID-19: Bridge & walkway physical distancing measures, program registration suspensions

For immediate release: March 27, 2020 - 5:37pm
FR20-1135

We are constantly reassessing developments to ensure the safety and well-being of staff and citizens and how the City delivers public services during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bridge pathways, pedestrian overpasses and underpasses

With warmer temperatures in the forecast, it will be a great weekend to get out for some fresh air and go for a walk or jog. While enjoying the outdoors, always maintain a safe, two-metre (six feet) distance away from others. This is especially important while crossing Saskatoon’s many bridge pathways, pedestrian overpasses and underpasses.

Effective March 27, walkways on the Traffic Bridge are now for one-way pedestrian traffic (one-side southbound & one-side northbound). This will allow the practice of social distancing of at least 2-metres from others. The City will continue to review other bridge pathways and pedestrian overpasses, underpasses and tunnels. Crews will be posting signage on many of the pathways to remind people to respect social/physical distancing.

As a reminder, the CP Pedestrian Bridge is closed until further notice as it is not wide enough for users to keep a two-metre distance away from others — especially while passing each other.
