With the new design of Saskatchewan Avenue W some changes have been made to the 8th Street W and Saskatchewan Avenue W intersection.  These changes have been made to improve the safety of the intersection.  A traffic study was done, and it was determined that this change would have only minor impacts to traffic patterns in the area.

The following traffic movements will no longer be allowed:

  • Through travel north or south from 8th Street SW to 8th Street NW.
  • Right turns from 8th Street SW onto Saskatchewan Avenue W.
  • Left turns from westbound Saskatchewan Avenue W to 8th Street. SW.

8th Street SW has been signed “No Through Road” at St. George Avenue for travel north and other signs have been installed to indicate the changes. The existing traffic signals will be replaced in the near future.
