Moose Jaw, SK – The City of Moose Jaw is asking residents to be safe and refrain from approaching equipment as construction season begins to ramp up. It’s important to keep a comfortable distance between yourself and City equipment/vehicles as safety measures need to be followed in all work sites and construction areas.

Public Works crews are currently working on several projects throughout the city and work sites aren’t always fenced or barricaded in. If a resident was to come into a roadway or area where equipment is in operation this could result in a serious injury. “Moving equipment of all types can pose significant safety hazards,” explained Jason Trzaskowski, Street and Roads Supervisor. “We ask that the public refrain from approaching City equipment while staff are performing their duties. Residents that have questions or concerns about the work being performed, or that would like to request services are encouraged to call 306.694.4448 or submit them through the City of Moose Jaw app”.

The City app can be downloaded for free from your favourite app store, and submissions can be made through the Report An Issue feature.

Motorists are also encouraged to obey all permanent and temporary traffic signage, and to avoid areas with active work, especially with moving equipment.
