SaskTel Centre with support from City of Saskatoon Transportation division, will be altering the ingress routes for Friday’s game. The purpose in order to maximize traffic flow and reduce the amount of time fans wait to park, Apex Street will be converted to a one-way street with two travel lanes. The one-way direction will begin at the intersection of Apex Street and Thatcher Avenue, with two lanes of vehicles southbound on Thatcher Avenue being directed to turn left onto Apex Street and travel east, and then south to 60th Street in two lanes of traffic.
Other changes to the inbound traffic include:
Installing two left turn lanes for westbound traffic on Marquis Drive turning left onto Thatcher Avenue and driving south.
