Working at night will cut down on the noise and reduce disruptions to people, city officials said.

“We understand construction and the delays and detours that sometimes occur can be an inconvenience, but we do our best to avoid a lot of work in one area at the same time,” Tim Bushman, the city’s engineering manager, construction and design, said in a press release.

“To see where significant 2019 road construction projects are happening and when residents can keep an eye on the daily road report at Saskatoon.ca.”
