Project Update - October 2020
Tree clearing and pruning along Saskatchewan Drive started on Monday October 19, 2020 to prepare for the new, wider bridge. This will also allow for a wider shared-use path on the north side of the new bridge.
Once construction has been completed, the site will be restored to match the surrounding natural areas of the North Saskatchewan River Valley. After the existing vegetation has been removed, the existing soils will be stripped off and stored during construction. These soils will be placed back on the site and a carefully selected mixture of trees and shrubs will be planted to re-establish the native vegetation and help to stabilize the soils at the site.
