Broadway Avenue Improvement begins May 2

Much anticipated work at Broadway Avenue is set to begin this Monday, May 2nd.

“Good weather and good planning has kept this significant project on time and on target,” says Celene Anger, Director of Construction and Design. “With so many contributing factors playing into this project, keeping to the schedule as much as possible has been, and will continue to be a top priority.”

The Broadway Avenue Improvement Project will see extensive water main upgrades and road resurfacing to Broadway Avenue and surrounding areas, with work scheduled to last approximately five months. The project has been specifically designed to minimize impact on the community, allowing for business to remain open and events to take place as normally as possible.

“We’re modernizing the infrastructure under our City’s very first commercial district,” Anger says. “When this work is complete, Broadway Avenue residents and businesses will see a marked reduction in water main breaks, which will mean fewer disruptions for everyone.

“The road resurfacing will make Broadway Avenue look better and last longer. When people attend events like the Fringe Festival, they are going to see a huge difference in the quality of the street surface.”

As the project is starting on time, the scheduled closure of Broadway Bridge is also on target for May 9, and will be closed to vehicle traffic for approximately one week. However, pedestrians and cyclists will be able to use the walkways on the bridge.

“If Broadway Avenue is a typical way downtown, we’re reminding those folks to reroute their commute during the construction and to use another bridge such as the Senator Sid Buckwold Bridge,” she says.

Saskatoon Transit will also be rerouting its commute, using alternate streets including Dufferin Avenue as necessary.

Slow down, pay attention and respect work zones. Watch for pedestrians and work crews, and for everyone’s safety, please obey all detours, signs and barriers.

Broadway Avenue Improvement Project Starts in May

Extensive water main upgrades and road resurfacing will begin along Broadway Avenue on May 2. The work will last approximately five months, and has been specifically designed to minimize the impact on the community as much as possible. Broadway Avenue will remain open for business and entertainment as the work is completed in phases.

“This work will result in fewer water main breaks in the future, meaning less disruption to businesses and drivers,” says Celene Anger, Director of Construction and Design. “Road resurfacing will extend the lifespan of the avenue and result in a new, smoother surface. Deferring this project would result in further deterioration and increase future construction costs.”

In the first phase, the Broadway Bridge will be closed for approximately one week. The City will take this opportunity to simultaneously complete asset perseveration work on adjacent roads north of the bridge, minimizing the overall time the bridge will be closed. Commuters are being asked to reroute their commute during the summer-long project, making use of other bridges and highways. Detours will be clearly marked, and when necessary, the primary detour route around Broadway Avenue (when the bridge is open) will be Dufferin Avenue.

When work on Broadway Avenue is complete, the project will move onto side streets, including block sections of 10th, 11th, and 12th Streets as well as a four block section of Main Street. Residents who require individual sewer line or lead water line replacements have already been notified.

“We have been working with homeowners and businesses since last November, giving as much advance notice as possible. Throughout construction there will be some unavoidable inconveniences, specifically with water supply and route access”, says Anger. “Whenever homes and businesses are briefly without regular water access, water will be supplied via temporary hookups.”

Slow down, pay attention and respect work zones. Watch for pedestrians and work crews, and for everyone’s safety, please obey all detours, signs and barriers.
