Saskatoon roads have a thin film of ice after Sunday’s heavy rain and overnight freezing temperatures. Early morning flurries and more snow in the forecast for today can hide slippery patches. Drivers are reminded to slow down and use extra caution on high-traffic roads and priority streets such as Circle Drive, overpasses and bridges, and when approaching intersections.

Starting tomorrow morning, 33rd Street between Junor Avenue and Matheson Drive will be closed to repair a water main. This work is expected to take 2 days to complete, weather permitting and barring any unforeseen circumstances.

Signs will be in place detouring road users around the construction area and remind everyone to respect the work zone. These detours will cause delays so road users should allow extra time for their daily commute. Access to sidewalks will also be reduced during this project.

The exit ramps for eastbound traffic on College Drive to go northbound or southbound on McOrmond Drive, will open on Wednesday, October 31. Opening the ramps will create free-flow traffic, eliminating the need for College Drive traffic to turn right from the eastbound lane in order to go northbound or southbound on McOrmond Drive. (see gif diagram here).

City Council approved the adoption of a new purchasing policy at its October 22, 2018 meeting, the measure recommended by the Standing Policy Committee on Finance.

The new policy, which takes effect December 1, 2018, now reflects best practices for public procurement, and brings the City’s policy into compliance with trade treaty obligations. It draws on criteria from federal and provincial procurement rules and will use ‘best value’ rather than lowest price in the procurement of civic goods and services for the City.
