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 projects include resurfacing the east bound lanes of College Drive from Central Avenue to the City limits, rehabilitating the overpass at Circle Drive and 8th Street, and resurfacing 8th Street from Broadway Avenue to Lorne Avenue.  All current construction projects can be viewed on the Road Restrictions and Construction Projects Map

Water main work is also a major part of the construction plan this year. 23 kilometers of water mains and sanitary sewer mains are scheduled for replacement and repair in neighbourhoods like Nutana, Montgomery, Caswell Hill, Riversdale and along 20th Street West. For details regarding major water main replacement and rehabilitation projects in 2021, please visit this page.  820 old water and sewer service connections will be replaced as well.
