Proper disposal of leaves prevents them from blowing onto boulevards and sidewalks and collecting in gutters causing flooding in the spring. It is the homeowner’s responsibility to maintain sidewalks and boulevards adjacent to their property; pushing or blowing leaves onto the street is not allowed.

There are several options for composting fallen leaves and other organic waste from yards this fall:

As part of the City’s commitment to reconciliation, a transit shelter was designed in collaboration with students from Aden Bowman Collegiate and Saskatoon Metis Elder, Senator Nora Cummings to be installed in front of the school.

“This new transit shelter is a wonderful addition to our community and our transit system,” says Mayor Clark. “The inspiring artwork can be enjoyed by everyone, including the neighbouring community and transit riders alike.”

Due to technical issues, Saskatoon Transit vendors are currently unable to sell certain passes including the October monthly pass and the senior 3-month pass.

Riders can continue to purchase multi-ride passes from vendors.  All passes can still be purchased and renewed at either the Saskatoon Transit Customer Service office (226 23rd Street East) or at City Hall.

Saskatoon Transit is working to fix this issue and hopes to have the problem resolved shortly.

In the recent months, there has been a noticeable increase in structure fires resulting from the spontaneous combustion of soiled rags that had not been sufficiently cleaned or properly stored.

Rags, towels, and other applicators that have been soiled with combustible products, such as oil-based paints, stains, and finishing products, are a serious concern. These products release heat while drying; if that heat is trapped and has access to an oxygen supply, it will build up and create an ideal environment for a fire to start.

This Tuesday crews will close Diefenbaker Drive between McArthur Lane and Kensington Boulevard to install a raised pedestrian crossing. Work is expected to last 10 days barring weather events or unforeseen circumstances.

Current infrastructure will be removed and a permanent, concrete platformed area will be installed. When complete, this mid-street crossing will allow pedestrians to cross between George H Clare Pond on the north and Bev M Dyck Pond on the south.

Crews will be repairing a sewer main on Central Avenue between 104th Street and 103rd Street starting Tuesday morning. Work is expected to take 2 days barring any unforeseen circumstances or weather delays.

This work will cause traffic interruptions. Signs will be in place detouring road users around the construction area and reminding everyone to respect the work zone. Road users should allow extra time for their daily commute.

Sidewalk and parking restrictions will be in place around this construction zone for the duration of the project.

September 24, 2018 - 8:00am

Starting tomorrow (September 25), Lorne Avenue will be closed north of Circle Drive to decommission a watermain. This work is expected to take about 5 days barring weather events or unexpected circumstances. 

The first part of this construction project, completed in August, connected a new, upgraded PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) watermain to the western side of the Western Development Museum. The work taking place over the next week is to decommission the old watermain which is located at a different location further to the south of the museum.

September 24, 2018 - 6:00am

Clarence Avenue is currently closed for emergency watermain repairs between Taylor Street and Isabella Street. The roadway is expected to reopen Sunday evening.

This construction will impact Transit routes. Check for Service Alerts on your route on SaskatoonTransit.ca/service-alerts or on your mobile device using the app called Transit.
