College Drive is expected to fully reopen two weeks after a crane hit a pedestrian overpass in Saskatoon.

The walkway in the 1800 block of College Drive was hit by the crane when it was being hauled on the back of a truck the morning of Dec. 7, which created structural damage and knocked it out of alignment. Temporary support towers were installed.
