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 included the resurfacing of College Drive eastbound between Central Avenue and Highway 41 and rehabilitating the overpass on Circle Drive over 8th Street. Both projects successfully wrapped up at the end of July.

For details regarding major water main replacement and rehabilitation projects in 2021, please visit this page.  

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