As part of the provincial government’s economic recovery plan, all municipalities in the province were provided with funding for infrastructure projects. Last month, part of this funding was allocated to neighbourhood traffic improvements, sidewalk rehabilitation, the construction of a Downtown festival site, and freeway safety improvements.
Staff at the City of Saskatoon are working hard to build a successful and thriving city. A big part of this is looking for ways to be cost-effective and efficient, so that we can provide high-quality services and spend less money doing it.
The provincial government has provided all municipalities in the province with per capita funding for infrastructure improvements, and the City of Saskatoon is eligible for $35.53M from this program.

If you spent some time this summer driving or biking through City Park or Riversdale, you probably hit some roadblocks and detours.

Another improvement made during this time was that the hundred-year-old lead water lines from the water main to people’s houses were being replaced.
