Current Projects

1. Rehabilitation of Sid Buckwold Bridge

The Senator Sid Buckwold Bridge will undergo a major rehabilitation beginning on April 15, 2019. The project will also include resurfacing the Idylwyld Drive ramps over 19th Street.

To minimize the impact on traffic and eliminate the need for a full bridge closure, the rehabilitation will happen in two phases. Phase 1 will begin on the west side of the bridge and work will continue through the 2019 construction season. In the spring of 2020, Phase 2 work will begin on the east side of the bridge and continue through the 2020 construction season.

Visit the Sid Buckwold Project page for more information.

2. Resurfacing of westbound lanes on College Drive from the city limits to the Canadian Pacific Rail overpass.

This is the first phase of a two-year resurfacing project on College Drive from the City of Saskatoon limits to the Canadian Pacific Rail overpass. In 2019, the work will occur on the westbound lanes of College Drive with the eastbound lanes addressed in 2020. Work is anticipated to begin mid-September.
 

3. Resurfacing of Circle Drive from the Millar Avenue intersection to the Circle Drive North Bridge

The resurfacing of Circle Drive from Millar Avenue intersection to the Circle Drive North Bridge has been scheduled to occur this year in multiple phases in order to minimize the impacts of motorists. In order to do so, the work will be completed over the period of two weekends and will include night work. |
 

4. Water and Sewer Upgrades with Roadwork

Significant water and sewer improvement work is happening around the city over the next few years. This work includes the preservation/rehabilitation of water mains (underground lines that carry water to individual properties) and as well as the rehabilitation of roadways and sidewalks.

In 2019, two large water main replacement projects will take place in the Riversdale and City Park neighbourhoods. Due to the significant amount of work required for each project, the construction will take place over several construction seasons.

Riversdale Water Main Replacement Project

The Riversdale Water Main Replacement Project will get underway in the spring of 2019. Here is what the project entails and what the City plans to accomplish in 2019-2020:

  • Replacement of water mains currently more than 100 years old.
  • Increased water main capacity to accommodate greater volumes of water.
  • Replacement of approximately 162 lead service lines and fibre sewer connections.
  • Restoration of roadways, resulting in smooth, ‘like new’ road surfaces.
  • Replacement or rehabilitation of sidewalks.

On streets where work is happening, above ground temporary water mains will be in place and the street will be fully closed. This will not restrict current water service. Once a street is complete, the City will repave it curb-to-curb.

City Park

Similar to the Riversdale Project, the City Park Project extends over the course of a few construction seasons in order to minimize the impact on neighbourhood residents. Phasing the work over a few years ensures not every street is under construction at the same time, thereby protecting some on-street parking as well as general accessibility. In 2018 – 2019 the City plans to accomplish:

  • Replacement of water mains currently more than 100 years old.
  • Increased water main capacity to accommodate greater volumes of water.
  • Replacement of approximately 290 lead service lines and fibre sewer connections.
  • Restoration of roadways, resulting in smooth, ‘like new’ road surfaces.
  • Replacement or rehabilitation of sidewalks.

On streets where work is happening, above ground temporary water mains will be in place and the street will be fully closed. This will not restrict current water service. Once a street is complete, the City will repave it curb-to-curb.
 

5. Other 2019 Road Construction Projects

In 2019, several other road construction projects will take place from May – October. More information about where and when these projects will take place can be found on the City's Road Restrictions & Construction Projects Map.
