Two primary water main inspections will be taking place under the Circle Drive southbound ramp to 8th Street starting Monday, July 30. The project is expected to last approximately 7 weeks.

During the work, access from Circle Drive southbound to 8th Street will be maintained, but a section of the ramp will be reduced to one lane, so traffic exiting from Circle Drive southbound onto 8th Street may extend onto Circle Drive during peak traffic times. Drivers will still have the ability to turn left or right onto 8th Street.

The Saskatoon Police Service is investigating an incident where a truck narrowly missed a roadways worker and damaged specialized patching equipment.

“Fortunately no one was injured; however, one person was in the work zone at the time and three others were on their way from another site – each of them with families to get home to,” says Brandon Harris, Director of Roadways & Operations.

“With advance warning signs and plenty of pylons, there is absolutely no reason for any vehicle to be in that work zone and put lives at risk.”

Starting Monday, July 30, the 11th Street pedestrian tunnel below Idylwyld Drive will be closed for up to three weeks while major repairs take place.

The project also requires the closure of the northbound and southbound median lanes of Idylwyld Drive above the tunnel.

The 35 metre long tunnel, built in 1966, requires walkway, curb, railing, and concrete repairs.

Pedestrians are encouraged to cross Idylwyld Drive at Saskatchewan Crescent while the work takes place.

Starting today, Avenue C north of 36th Street will close for 2 weeks to allow for the installation of a sewer line. Westbound parking lanes on 36th Street adjacent to this work zone will also be closed while construction is underway.

During this road closure, crews will take the opportunity to install sidewalks at this location. By combining these two projects, it shortens the amount of time the roadway needs to be closed.

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.
