Saskatoon Fire News Releases



Friday night’s snowfall covered Saskatoon with approximately 7 centimetres of snow. City crews have worked through the night clearing snow on Priority 1 streets such as Circle Drive, 22nd Street, Idylwyld Drive, College Drive and 8th Street. Grading continues on the remaining Priority street network.

The extreme cold, combined with this new moisture may cause icing on bridge decks, freeway ramps, overpasses and high-traffic intersections. Crews are sanding; however, salt is not effective at these low temperatures and sand is not sticking to the road.
