The City of Saskatoon will be reopening the University Bridge to traffic tomorrow (August 4). The bridge was closed to regular traffic, maintaining one lane for emergency vehicles, on May 3 in order to undertake a complete deck replacement.
The bridge is expected to open tomorrow following the morning commute. Transit Service will continue as scheduled, however, routes that typically use the University Bridge may be rerouted via the Broadway Bridge during the morning commute. Riders planning to take one of these routes should allow for an extra 10 to 15 minutes.
