As winter finally melts away, city crews are left to deal with the debris on the ground.
The City of Fort Saskatchewan has started spring cleaning its roadways as of Tuesday (Apr.24).
"We're out doing our normal spring cleaning along the Blvds. and turfed areas and that involves setting up traffic control, so we sure appreciate everybody's cooperation with obeying the signs and flaggers to keep everybody safe," said the city's parks services manager Jean Dabels.
Traffic control will be set up along 99th Avenue from Bridgeview entrance to the bridge.
Wednesday (Apr.25) and possibly Thursday they will be working along the Highway as well.
The city sets up traffic control in high traffic areas in order to ensure vehicles slow down and workers are kept safe.
Spring clean up typically takes up to two weeks.
