Acadia Drive Construction

College Park, thank you for your patience as the City completes construction along TWO segments of Acadia Drive.

Acadia Drive is closed at both Carleton Drive and between Leddy Crescent and Harrington Crescent. This will cause a delay in folks trying to use Acadia Drive as there is no through access. Please note, the construction at Acadia Drive/Carleton Drive will be complete on Friday, August 2 and open again for use on Saturday, August 3. The construction at Acadia/Harrington/Leddy will be in place until August 26.

Building Better Roads Program

In addition to regular road maintenance, the Building Better Roads program is aiming to improve another 206 lane kilometres of roadway and replace more than 20 kilometers of sidewalk during the 2018 construction season. Since the establishment of a dedicated road levy in 2014, 876 lane kilometers of roadway have been improved and 36 kilometers of sidewalk have been replaced under the program.

When the 2018 construction season is complete, the Building Better Roads program will have rehabilitated 1,085 lane kilometres of roadway. That’s roughly the one-way distance from City Hall to Salmon Arm, BC. The 56 kilometers of sidewalk replaced would create a path the distance from City Hall to Borden.

Home Flood Protection Program

Every home has some risk for flooding during spring snow melt and rain storms. The City of Saskatoon and SGI CANADA are sponsoring a national pilot program to help Saskatoon homeowners understand their flood risk and take measures to protect their property from flooding.

Saskatoon homeowners can register now for a free or partially-subsidized professional Home Flood Protection Program home assessment – valued at $450 - to help identify their flood risks. The subsidized Home Flood Protection Program inspections will be available to the first 400 Saskatoon homeowners to register in 2018. 

Up to 100 homes that meet the criteria for high flood risk areas are eligible for a free home assessment. Other homeowners are eligible for a subsidized rate of $125. (Homes that qualify for free assessments will have already received a notice from the City of Saskatoon indicating their eligibility.)

Street Sweeping 2018

As soon as the roads are dry in early spring, the City begins a spring sweeping blitz to remove heavier dirt and debris that gathers over the winter. Beginning in April, yellow No Parking signs are posted on scheduled priority streets to notify drivers of upcoming curb-to-curb sweeping through neighbourhoods. In mid-October, street sweeping occurs in select neighbourhoods to reduce the potential for spring flooding.

Climate Change

Share your ideas on climate action in Saskatoon!

The following information was gathered from the City of Saskatoon's Low Emissions Community Plan page:

The City of Saskatoon (City) is currently creating a climate action plan that will identify how we, as a community, can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and respond to the local causes and effects of climate change. The plan will guide our actions and investments as a City, as well as outline ways the City can support community initiatives.
