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.

Update on house demolition at 1235 Avenue B North

UPDATE on partially-demolished house at 1235 Avenue B N

(Update from May 28, 2018)

” The removal of the ACM material requires an approved demolition work plan by the Ministry of Occupational Health and Safety. Due to the partially demolished structure, the Ministry has requested additional information be provided prior to the demolition proceeding. The purpose of the additional information is to ensure the structure of the building is safe for workers to enter and continue the demolition. The level of detail requested by the Ministry for this project was not expected.

The City of Saskatoon is frustrated by the continued delays this project is experiencing, however we do support and understand worker safety is a priority. We are working with the contractor and the Ministry to address the work plan and continue with the demolition. It is important to note there is no risk to the public or residents in the area. The Ministry has not raised any concerns related to public safety throughout the review process.

Demolition timelines will be updated upon receiving approval from the Ministry to proceed with the project.

Residents requesting further information may contact:
Kara Fagnou, P. Eng. | tel 306.975.3232
Director, Building Standards ”

Water Meter Upgrades coming soon

** WATER METER UPGRADES coming soon – see details below for information on how to book your appointment to help make the process go smoothly. **

Water meters will be getting upgraded in Hudson Bay Park from September 14 – October 22.

A few details:

* Water meter upgrades are necessary for your meter to work with the City’s new automated system. It is mandatory for all Saskatoon Water customers to have this upgrade.

* The new meters will be an improvement – they’ll track how much water and power you use, rather than offering an estimate which can sometimes lead to surprise ‘catch up’ bills.

To help with this you can:  Watch for a letter and sign board(s) letting you know when work will be done in your area.

NOTE: Customers must book an appointment for the technician to enter the home; someone must be at home for the appointment; appointments generally take 15-30 minutes.

– Appointments are available Monday to Saturday, with some evening appointments.

BOOK YOUR APPOINTMENT: To book an appointment Phone: 306-986-1731 Monday to Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (Leave a message after hours) E-mail amiwatermeter@saskatoon.ca Text 306-250-6008, or book one online at: https://www.saskatoon.ca/services-residents/power-water/water-wastewater/water-meters/water-meter-ami-project/water-meter-ami-online-booking%20

NO COST: There is no cost to the customer to have this work done.

NOTE: If you don’t make an appointment when we first come to your neighbourhood, it could be two years before we return to your area.

* We’ll also be upgrading the electrical meters, but we don’t need to get into your home to do this.
