Building Better Roads is the most aggressive road repair and rehabilitation program Saskatoon has ever seen. With an annual funding level of $61 million that covers road construction, road repair, pothole patching, sidewalk rehabilitation, back lane upgrades, street sweeping, and snow and ice management. This year's goal to rehabilitate 206 lane kilometres of roadway was met and 33 kilometres of sidewalks were improved - 13 kilometres more than forecast. Since the establishment of a dedicated road levy in 2014, lane kilometres of roadway and kilometres of sidewalk have been improved under the program.
is guided by the results of the 2013 Civic Services survey that identified roads as the most important issue facing residents. The program will continue to dramatically improve the condition, safety and longevity of Saskatoon’s road network for years to come.
