Saskatchewan Drive / Scona Road is a river valley road on the south side of the North Saskatchewan River in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It was formed on the banks of the river when the area was known as the City of Strathcona. After the amalgamation with Edmonton, and as the grid streets expanded, Saskatchewan Drive was broken up, however most of it still remains, with portions being one-way streets.
