The afternoon commute may be slower than normal due to winter driving conditions. Low temperatures and windy conditions are creating icy spots on many streets across Saskatoon.

The City will continue to apply a combination of pre-wet sand and salt to reduce ice on high-traffic roads through the afternoon commute. Plows, graders and sanders will continue to focus on high traffic roads such as Circle Drive, 8th Street, Idylwyld Drive and 22nd Street to improve conditions for the morning commute.

Drivers are reminded to slow down and use extra caution.
