Sections of Central Avenue and connecting roadways are undergoing improvements including water and sewer upgrades, resurfacing, and water main lining. The work will entail full closures of the areas under construction and detour signage will be posted to reroute traffic.

These improvements were identified as part of the Building Better Roads plan and will help prepare the area roadways for the increased and changed traffic patterns expected following the opening of the North Commuter Parkway next year.

The City is pleased to announce two new temporary artworks as part of the 2017 Placemaker Program.

We are the River, by Susan Shantz and Barbara Reimer of Saskatoon, is an art project that aims to highlight the vital connection between Saskatoon residents and the South Saskatchewan River.  Photos of people holding statements about their personal and collective relationship with the river have been taken at various events throughout the summer and are currently being displayed on billboards in the downtown and Riversdale areas, as well as on social media.

Water and Waste stream crews have now isolated the water main break and stopped the leakage of water near Central Avenue and Garvie Road. There are no concerns about drinking water quality and no drinking water advisories have been issued.

Initial information indicates the disrupted line connects to the primary water main that crosses the river.  Computer modelling of the system suggests any drop in pressure would have been relatively minor and experienced in the North and Northwest quadrants of Saskatoon on the west side of the river.
