  1. City Launches New Report a Traffic Issue Online Map

A new online tool has been launched that will allow residents to report traffic related concerns more accurately and efficiently. The new online interactive map provides citizens with the opportunity to report a traffic issue or concern associated with traffic, road signage/signals and safety on any Saskatoon street.

Similar to the City’s Report a Pothole Map, residents find the correct location, place a dot on the map and follow the prompts to report an issue. There are nine traffic issue categories to choose from including cycling safety, back lanes, pedestrian safety, road construction, short cutting traffic, speeding, signage, traffic delays or congestion and walkways.

The Report a Traffic Issue Map is available on a desktop browser, smart phone or tablet device. To access the map please visit
