Incident Leads to Closure of College Drive

For immediate release: October 12, 2017 - 2:55pm

An incident earlier today has resulted in the closure of College Drive between Circle Drive and Central Avenue. 

Motorists are asked to avoid the area if possible. Motorists leaving the city centre travelling eastbound on College Drive will be able to access Circle Drive and travel north or south.  Motorists coming into the city travelling westbound on College Drive must exit at Central Avenue.

Motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes.  Residents of Brighton, Willowgrove, Arbor Creek, Erindale, and areas east of the City limits can use 8TH Street to McOrmond Drive or Circle Drive to Highway 16 to Zimmerman Road (by the new Costco).  Residents of Sutherland, Forest Grove, Silverspring, and Evergreen are encouraged to use Attridge Drive and 108TH Street.

Traffic signals are being adjusted at key intersections to assist with the change in driving routes, but everyone is reminded this closure will cause delays.  Please allow for additional travel time to reach destinations, and remember to respect all detour signage.

The Saskatoon Fire Department remains on scene providing scene safety and stabilizing the incident.  Updates will be issued as roadways reopen.
