The city of Regina is out and about taking care of problem areas after the first snowfall of the season.
Norman Kyle with the city of Regina said ice is the main concern right now.
“Typically for ice control we go to wherever it’s the most slippery, but we do hit the major roads first because of the traffic volume, if people find there’s a problem area please feel free to call 777-7000 and report it,” Kyle said on Wednesday.
Crews have been out working since 4:00 a.m. Wednesday morning and will continue to work overnight into Thursday if need be.
Kyle said they have nine sanding trucks around the city.
“We’ve got nine sanding trucks out right now, which is a standard response for this type of event, usually we have eight to ten trucks for something like this,” Kyle told reporters.
Kyle added the city was planning on officially changing over all their equipment into winter mode on Saturday, so they were prepared for the snow.
“Our formal transition was Saturday, so equipment was already being switched over and ready to go, it’s the prairies and you can get snow in August, so you always have to be prepared for that,” Kyle said.
As of 11:00 a.m. Wednesday morning Regina Police say 22 accidents have been reported to them, injuries were sustained in only one of those.
