 COVID-19 Response for Saskatoon Residents

On March 19, 2020, the City decided to close public access to City Hall and all City buildings, including fire stations, leisure facilities, attractions and Saskatoon Public Library locations. While we are closed to the public, our business operations continue to ensure core services for our residents as much as possible. Public transit currently remains operational.


The standard specifications and drawings for roadways and water and sewer construction are posted on this web site and are subject to revision, addition or deletion.

In the event of revisions, additions or deletions being made that affect open tenders for any roadways or water and sewer projects, contract addenda will be forwarded to all registered bidders advising them of changes to the specifications and/or drawings that may affect such tenders.

It is the responsibility of each supplier and/or contractor to identify the specifications and drawings required for the supply of materials and/or construction services.  It is also the responsibility of each supplier and/or contractor to obtain such specifications and drawings from the website for use in bidding or executing work approved or specified by the City of Saskatoon.
