Saskatoon at Work 

The most aggressive program of road construction,
road repair and road maintenance ever seen in
Saskatoon began in 2014 and will continue. More projects mean more work zones and more traffic detours. You will want to add extra time to your travels! 

Thank you for your patience during construction season!
