Important Reminder re: traffic lights at intersection of 33rd St West and Avenue D North:
You cannot turn right on a red light when approaching 33rd St West from the north or the south on Avenue D. There are large signs up on both north and south sides of the intersection that are very visible. The lights will change to green to let you know when it is okay to turn right.

Register your bicycle

Saskatoon Police are reminding residents to register their bikes to help police find the rightful owner in case of theft.

From Police: ” Recording your bike’s serial number and other identifying information could make the difference in getting your lost or stolen bike back.

In Saskatoon, Police have seen an increase in the number of bikes being stolen. Hundreds of recovered bicycles go to auction each year in Saskatoon because Police cannot identify owners. Bikes and bike parts are actually used as currency in the drug trade. For that reason, the SPS encourages you to record your bicycle information and enter it on our registry. This information is for police use only in the event your bike is lost or stolen. ”

UPDATE on 33rd Street West and Avenue D North intersection

UPDATE from City of Saskatoon:

INTERSECTION at 33rd St W and Avenue D North:

1) The good news is that we’re back on track and we expect the new traffic signals to be operational by Tuesday, June 12th.

2) Road users may notice that the operation of the new signals has been modified to improve the intersection safety. North and south approaches on Avenue D will have separate signal phases and the right-turn-on-red from Avenue D onto 33rd Street will be prohibited.

3) In addition to the signal install at 33rd Street and Avenue D, the City is in the process of installing an active pedestrian corridor at 33rd Street and Avenue C. This pedestrian device will enable pedestrians to activate a crosswalk that includes a flashing amber beacon alert for drivers. This corridor installation is expected to start within the next couple of weeks and the work will be completed by the end of June.
