An early spring storm is forecast to hit Saskatoon tomorrow before the morning commute, bringing 5 to15 centimetres of wet snow throughout the day and into Saturday.

Much of the snow that falls is expected to melt on contact or become slushy due to recent warmer weather and above freezing temperatures in the forecast. This combination may increase the risk of flooding in high risk areas.

Plows will be actively clearing snow from high-traffic, high-speed roads as soon as snow starts to accumulate.

Construction milestones are about to be reached on two new interchanges currently under construction in Saskatoon. Both interchanges are ready for the installation of girders - concrete structures that support the bridge deck. 56 girders will first be placed over the eastbound and westbound lanes of College Drive at McOrmond Drive.

“Installation at this site will take approximately three weeks,” says Bryan Zerebeski, Project Manager, Saskatoon Interchange Project. “The girders were manufactured in Alberta. Once on site, a 250 tonne crane will immediately lift them into place.”

Recent milder temperatures have caused snow to begin melting in and around homes and neighbourhoods. Every home is at risk of flooding, even if your home hasn't flooded before. The single best way to reduce the risk of flooding in homes is to direct meltwater away from properties. Directing meltwater away from homes and onto roadways will help it follow the designed path into storm sewer pipes and out of neighbourhoods.
