Construction

Construction in Saskatoon is inevitable every summer and millions of dollars are invested annually into ensuring our roads, sidewalks and bridges remain safe. To help reduce the impact to residents and to save on costs and improve efficiency, much of the road and sidewalk work is done in conjunction with underground utility upgrades, such as water main replacements.  

On this page, you will find details about construction underway, links to more information about larger projects, and a preview into what’s to come in the next couple of years.

Current Construction

In 2021, $63.5 million is going toward making Saskatoon's streets, bridges, and sidewalks smoother, safer and longer lasting. The City has 165 lane kilometers of road construction of all types planned.

Major road projects include:

College Drive

  • The eastbound lanes of College Drive between Central Avenue and Highway 41 are being resurfaced
  • Eastbound traffic on College Drive  down to one lane through the 60 km/h work zone  
  • Work starting July 11 and is expected to take approximately two weeks

Circle Drive

  • A rehabilitation project on the Circle Drive overpass over 8th Street.  
  • Work on the overpass beginning July 11 and expected to take approximately six weeks.
  • Northbound and southbound traffic on Circle Drive is slowed to 60 km/h through the work zone.
  • Work beneath the overpass may result in periodic lane closures on 8th Street between 8:00 p.m. and 5:30 a.m. This section of 8th Street will remain fully open during the daytime. 
  • There will be no traffic impacts on the ramps that lead onto and off Circle Drive at 8th Street.  

8th Street

  • resurfacing from Broadway Avenue to Lorne Avenue
  • date to be determined 

All current construction projects can be viewed on the Road Restrictions and Construction Projects Map
