Members of the traffic unit have been focusing on the construction zones at both Highway 5 at McOrmond Road and Highway 16 at Boychuk Drive.

Officers said they will continue to focus on construction zones to help protect the safety of workers and equipment operators.
“They’ve had some near misses with their workers in these zones and we want to make sure that people are aware that these are the rules,” Saskatoon police spokesperson Alyson Edwards said.
“We give them a little bit of time to adjust and if we don’t see that adjustment happen, we have to start handing out tickets.”
Drivers must slow to 60 km/h in Saskatoon’s work zones.
