The City of Saskatoon is undertaking the design of the permanent closure of 14th Street East between Lansdowne Avenue and Temperance Street. This connection was recommended for closure through the Nutana Neighbourhood Traffic Review which was conducted in 2014 and adopted by Council in May 2015. The closure was installed temporarily in 2016. The permanent closure has been approved by City Council.
Thank you to everyone that has provided input so far. We received your feedback via the design charrette (September 2017), and multiple stakeholder working group meetings (Spring and Summer 2018). We considered all of the concerns and feedback as we developed designs for the permanent closure options.
The proposed design for the 14th Street permanent closure has been posted to Saskatoon.ca/ntr and will be discussed at the Teams Live meeting. We would appreciate the opportunity to get your thoughts on the design. There are two ways to participate and provide us with your feedback:

The Neighbourhood Bikeways Project was initiated in February 2020 to help identify measures to provide more travel choices and improve safety, accessibility and connectivity. The project included the evaluation and design of walking and cycling facility improvements for 14th Street, from Saskatchewan Crescent to Cumberland Avenue.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Saskatoon has reviewed all construction projects planned for 2020. It has been determined that the Clarence Avenue Water Main Replacement Project will proceed as planned, but with some modifications to the original planned construction area (see map). This work includes essential upgrades to existing infrastructure that, if delayed, could mean further, unplanned disruptions. The replacement of older water mains brings several benefits: Decreased susceptibility to breakage, failures and service disruptions Restoration of roadways, resulting in smooth ‘like new’ surfaces Replacement or rehabilitation of sidewalks within the work area To ensure the least amount of restrictions to driveway access and parking, construction will be phased:
Phase 1: o Clarence Avenue from 8th Street East to 12th Street East, including the intersection of Clarence Avenue and 12th Street East
Phase 2: o Clarence Avenue from 12th Street East to Colony Street
Phase 3: o Clarence Avenue from Colony Street to College Drive
Phase 4: o Temperance Street from Munroe Avenue to Wiggins Avenue o Munroe Avenue between Temperance Street and back lane of 1200 block of Temperance Street o Back Lane of 1200 block of Temperance Street o Wiggins Avenue between back lane of 1200 block of Temperance Street and Temperance Street
During this project, all lead water service connections and sewer service connections between College Drive and 8th Street East, and on the 1200 block of Temperance Street, will be replaced.
Councillor Cynthia Block will host a Virtual Block Party on June 4 at 7pm through Facebook Live to learn more about what is happening in your neighbourhood. The Mayor will also join our event to help answer your questions.
What’s on your mind? Let’s talk.
• Roads and Sidewalks • Taxes • Climate • Core Services • Safety • Something else? Submit your questions in advance at: bit.ly/ward6blockparty
To add a little Block Party flavour, the Mayor and Cynthia will each make a potluck dish, and make a contactless delivery following the event. All you have to do is share one of your favourite recipes in the event comments to be eligible for the draw. Cut off time to submit is 7pm on June 4.

As a stakeholder in the future of Downtown and Nutana, we want to hear from you! The City of Saskatoon will be holding two Come & Go Engagement Sessions in both the Downtown and Nutana areas to provide information on the proposed Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system, as well as additional information on the proposed Downtown All Ages and Abilities (AAA) Cycling Network. We want to work with you to ensure that the needs of everyone who uses Saskatoon’s roads are met.
These engagement sessions are an opportunity for you to review potential BRT routing and Downtown AAA Cycling Network options. We will listen to your comments and gather your input on preferences and considerations on both initiatives, prior to City Council deciding on these plans in early 2019. The proposed BRT routing options are shown below. Please consider attending an engagement session to have your say about the future of transportation in Saskatoon.
