Highway 16 over Idylwyld Drive Overpass Rehabilitation
Nov 9, 2015 - Overpass Now Open! The Highway 16 over Idylwyld Drive overpass to North Battleford is now open as rehabilitation of the structure progesses. The temporary traffic signals installed to control Idylwyld Dr southbound and Highway 16 westbound traffic have also been removed.
Speed restrictions and some lane restrictions will still be required at the intersection over the coming weeks while workers finalize repairs and clean up the site. The Province is responsible for the planning and construction of the project. As a major stakeholder and eventual owner of the infrastructure, the City of Saskatoon has worked closely with the Province and will coordinate traffic control for the duration of the project.
Every effort has been made to minimize disruption, with at least one lane of traffic maintained in all directions, however drivers should expect delays. During construction, Warman residents are encouraged to detour via the newly resurfaced Wanuskewin Road.
Keep up to date with road restrictions and know before you go! Plan your route around road work by checking our City Construction Map. Find traffic detour information and subscribe to Traffic Detour Service Alerts at saskatoon.ca/service-alerts. You can also follow us on Twitter @YXEServiceAlert.
