The City of Saskatoon says the Chief Mistawasis Bridge, McOrmond Drive and Central Avenue extensions as well as the new Traffic Bridge will be completed on time and on budget.
Acting General Manager of Corporate Performance Dan Willems said dry weather this spring and summer have helped contractors meet the deadline without cost over runs.
Willems added workers are putting the finishing touches on both structures like railings, sealing and pavement work, line painting, signage and landscaping.
The official opening ceremonies for both are on October 2nd.
The event planned for the Mistawasis Bridge starts at 8:50 a.m. and the Traffic Bridge Party gets underway at 11:45 a.m. Both are scheduled to last just over an hour.
City officials say the Mistawasis Bridge and extensions on McOrmond and Central will be open to traffic later in the day following the ceremony, while vehicles will start going over the Traffic Bridge the following day, October 3rd.
