River Road Closure

On Wednesday, July 26, 2023, a portion of River Road was permanently closed to traffic. 

Sections of River Road are deteriorating due to sloughing of the North Saskatchewan River bank, causing the road to narrow and further deteriorate.

Council approved the plan to close a portion of River Road to vehicle traffic at the February 28, 2023 Council meeting.

  • The portion to be closed is northeast of the entrance to the Fort Lions Campground and southwest of 119 Street.
  • Turn arounds are in place at the closure points for personal vehicles to change directions and exit.
  • Commuters are to use 119 Street to access the industrial area.
  • The nearly two-kilometres portion of the road will be converted to a multi-use trail for cyclists and pedestrians.

Pre-qualified contractors list

The City of Fort Saskatchewan is developing a pre-qualified contractors list for miscellaneous work up to $50,000 in value. The pre-qualification process consists of a safety questionnaire, a qualifications questionnaire and a listing of the work contractors are interested in.

The pre-qualified list will be used to request quotations for small contracts that come up during annual operations. Contract values are expected to be below $50,000 per contract.

Documents will be continually accepted and contractors added to the list. It is anticipated that interested contractors will be required to update their information on an annual basis.
