Important Information – City Services During First Snowfall
MOOSE JAW - City Engineering would like to reassure residents that the department is closely monitoring the snowfall and will be deploying the necessary equipment to respond.
Drivers are reminded to reduce speeds on streets and roadways to adjust for these driving conditions.
More snow and moisture is forecasted for the next few days and our crews will be ready to respond,” stated Darrin Stephanson, Municipal Operations Manager. Such conditions, along with evening temperatures dipping below the freezing mark, could cause icy conditions.
“Our priority is always the high traffic streets, intersections and main arteries – including those around fire stations and hospitals,” says Stephanson. “We remind drivers to remain alert to changing conditions and potential icy intersections.”
- Sanding crews will be ready to apply sand and salt as required.
- Staff will monitor drainage issues as the snow melts.
- Stop, yield and road signs may also be covered, so be aware at intersections.
The weather has also paused most of the City’s construction projects. However, drivers are asked to respect the barricades and detours signage installed for safety reasons.
The current forecast indicated above zero temperatures for the weekend, so it is anticipated that the work areas will dry up and work will continue next week.
This snowfall is currently not affecting transit services in the City.
If anyone has questions or concerns, please call the Engineering department at 306-694-4448.
