115th Street and Forest Drive intersection closes for 6 week watermain rehab project

For immediate release: July 19, 2018 - 5:00am
TU18-438

Starting today, the intersection at 115th Street and Forest Drive and adjacent roadways will close for 6 weeks to allow for watermain rehabilitation. This is phase one of a three phase project that also includes road rehabilitation work.

Signage has been in place as construction crews laid temporary water lines in advance of the road closure. Project phasing and advance work is being done to limit the impact on road users and residents.

This necessary work will cause traffic interruptions. Sidewalk and parking restrictions will be in place around the construction zone for the duration of the project. Detour signs will be in place directing road users around the work zone, but road users are advised to expect delays.

This construction will also impact Transit routes. Route 26 will detour 115th Street from Berini Drive to Spruce Drive and Routes 4, 27, 43, 44, and 45 may be impacted due to increased traffic flow on Attridge Drive. Check for Service Alerts on your route on SaskatoonTransit.ca/service-alerts or on your mobile device using the app called Transit.
