The city says the North Commuter Parkway Bridge is ready for construction of the third and final pier and girder installation on the two remaining east spans, while the Traffic Bridge will see work on the trusses for the final span completed over the next couple of months.
The announcement came as the city declared the projects half completed Thursday. Special Projects Manager of Major Projects & Preservation Dan Willems says there is a little more work than that yet to be done on both bridges. Motorists should note there is work expected to be done on the intersection of Marquis and Wanuskewin Road which could affect traffic in northbound and southbound directions from time-to-time. As for the Traffic Bridge, he notes there will be work coming on the retaining wall along Victoria Avenue as well as the underpass for Saskatchewan Crescent. The North Commuter Parkway will support the transportation needs of northeast Saskatoon residents who work in the Marquis and North Industrial Areas, while the Traffic Bridge will support the growing city centre by allowing drivers, pedestrians and cyclists to cross the river from Victoria Avenue.
