You may find this hard to believe, but Saskatoon recently won an award for a road-building program. Here’s the proof:
A recent survey indicates that roads are indeed a major priority for most Saskatoon residents. While a large part of the City’s current predicament stems from under-funding and rapidly rising costs, money alone won’t ensure reliable roads. Innovative approaches like the Green Streets project show the efficiencies that can be gained by building roads differently. As a result of this project’s success, the City is now looking at changing its specifications for road design to incorporate these new tools.
