With Canada Day activities in Saskatoon taking place downtown today there will be detours, lane restrictions and “NO PARKING” signs in place so you know how to navigate the event area.
Some of the road restrictions were in place yesterday morning and that includes Spadina Crescent which is closed between 2nd and 3rd avenues and between 3rd Avenue and 20th Street including the Saskatoon Boat Launch. Those restrictions will be lifted as of 6 a.m. Saturday morning.
Event road restrictions that start at 9 a.m. this morning include the Traffic Bridge from 11th to 19th Streets, Broadway Bridge between 12th and 20th Streets. Nineteenth Street is closed between 3rd and 4th Avenues and Saskatchewan Crescent is closed from 13th Street to McPherson Avenue. These restrictions are in place until 1 p.m. on Saturday.
Saskatoon Transit will be affected by the detours. The festivities are at River Landing Amphitheatre and at Nasser Plaza as well as a free concert at Victoria Park.
If you’re thinking of heading downtown to catch Canada Day festivities and don’t want to worry about parking, there will be free buses available after the fireworks show is over.
The buses will be leaving from either sides of the river at the Broadway Bridge. They will be making stops when requested along routes outlined in the Canada Day 2022 special event bus map .
When your planning to head downtown for the Canada Day celebrations think about using Saskatoon Transit’s recommended trip planning app called Transit.
The Transit app works out suggested trips that easily combine public transit with options like Uber or Riide. The app also allows you to pay your Saskatoon Transit fare with just a few easy taps of your phone.
