Saskatoon’s infrastructure construction season draws to a close

SASKATOON, SASK. – As winter approaches, Saskatoon’s busy road, bridge and watermain construction season is drawing to a close.

Saskatoon City Council invested approximately $67.19 million in 2023 for road construction and maintenance and more than 200 lane kilometres of roadways were improved, a municipal release said.

“That number includes roads repaved following watermain replacements in neighbourhoods like downtown, River Heights, Varsity View and on 33rd Street West. Wherever we install new watermains, we improve the roadway and address any sidewalk issues,” City of Saskatoon general manager of transportation and construction Terry Schmidt said.

High traffic roads resurfaced included:

  • Circle Drive North westbound between Millar Avenue and Alberta Avenue
  • Wanuskewin Road from 71st Street to Penner Road
  • Idylwyld Drive southbound from 60th Street to 51st Street
  • Sections of Preston Avenue between Preston Crossing and College Drive

“The highest profile construction project was the months-long Circle Drive North Bridge rehabilitation that included asphalt and barrier replacements, drainage improvements, and concrete repairs to the bridge deck, piers and abutments. We thank everyone for their patience as we worked to make sure the structure lasts for decades to come,” Schmidt said.

It would be nice to have Neault road back, or even a hint of expected time. It’s a major commuting path and forcing everyone through the city is just getting stupid, coming up in three months now.

I totally agree David. There has been no updates on how things are going and absolutely no time line. If you are doing something the city wants to know what you’re doing and when you are going to be finished.
