Building Better Roads
Building Better Roads is Saskatoon’s most aggressive program of road construction, repairs and maintenance ever. The program started in 2014 after the 2013 Civic Services Survey identified road conditions as the single most important issue affecting our city, and citizens told us they support increased investment in our roadways.
In 2017, the focus of the $61 million budget will be spent in improving sidewalks and roadways in local neighbourhoods. Over 205 residential lane kilometres in more than 44 neighbourhoods will see improvements. That more than half the city's communities! There will also be improvements to key intersections, replacement work water mains, sanitary sewer mains and 1009 water/sewer connections! Building Better Roads is also working to continuing improving street sweeping, pothole patching, sidewalk rehabilitation, back lane upgrades, road construction and repair, as well as snow and ice management.
