As work progresses on a new interchange at Boychuk Drive and Highway 16, a new temporary intersection and adjoining detour roads will open on Sunday, July 9, 2017.

The temporary intersection and adjoining roads are located just to the west of the existing intersection and will remain in place until the interchange opens in 2019.

The temporary intersection will operate in the same way as the existing intersection and is not expected to cause further traffic delays. Drivers are reminded to slow down to 60km/h through the construction zone.

The concrete pour on Saskatoon’s new Traffic Bridge will continue starting at midnight tonight, weather permitting and barring any unforeseen circumstances.

Pouring concrete at night is the best time for large pours as the temperature is cooler and humidity is lower. The concrete pour will wrap up early Friday morning.

The City would like to thank nearby residents for their understanding and patience during construction of the Traffic Bridge, including work happening outside of regular construction hours.
