Plans to save Canada Day traffic congestion are in the works.
 
The City of Fort Saskatchewan, along with the Canada Day Committee are making sure visitors get the best experience possible when attending events this weekend.
 
"If you are going to drive, please be aware of pedestrians on the road and other drivers, it's going to get pretty busy," said Conal MacMillan, Canada Day Committee chair.
 
The city is offering free transit rides for Canada Day from 9:30 a.m (July 1) to 12:20 a.m. (July 2). There are four Park and Ride sites available.

"In terms of getting there, we certainly encourage residents to walk if they live close enough," added MacMillan.
 
Bicycles are a another opportunity for residents to avoid traffic congestion. It's also a convenient way to ride around to various activities.
 
As for parking, it'll be available near the park but people are encouraged to carpool to minimize traffic.
