SNOW CLEARING AND REMOVAL ACTIVITIES THIS WEEK

For immediate release: February 1, 2015 - 4:52pm
TU14-112

The City is clearing and removing snow on certain high-density parking streets in a proactive response to minimize the potential for ruts developing and creating driving issues. City crews are engaged in clearing and loading out the snow on the streets listed below which are prone to developing snow ruts and have no storage room along the curb lanes.  City crews are currently performing this work on both day and night shifts using four graders and one snow blower.  Five private contractor semi-trucks are being used for hauling snow to the City’s snow storage sites during the day shift, and nine are used during the night shift.

During this process - only the following streets listed on the DAY SHIFT will be posted with No Parking signs in advance of the scheduled date.  Vehicles that remain on the street at 6:30 a.m. on the scheduled date will be relocated to a nearby street.  Relocation towing will be utilized during each identified day shift as necessary until the day shift street locations are complete.

Streets listed for clearing during the NIGHT SHIFT will not be posted and relocation towing will not be utilized. 

Drivers can use the Find My Vehicle application at www.saskatoon.ca/go/snow or call 306-975-2476 to locate their vehicle.

The City thanks residents for their patience and reminds everyone to please watch for crews and equipment on the road as they clear snow and apply de-icing material. Slow down and keep 15 metres behind maintenance equipment; be prepared to stop; and, if required, use extreme caution when passing.
