Canada, Saskatoon Invest in Bike/Pedestrian Infrastructure

Infrastructure Canada

Today, Terry Duguid, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Environment and Climate Change and Member of Parliament for Winnipeg South, and Charlie Clark, Mayor of Saskatoon, announced a joint investment of more than $2.6 million to support the construction of pedestrian and cycling infrastructure on Dudley Street between Dawes Avenue and Spadina Crescent in Saskatoon.

The project will add 1 kilometre of multi-use pathway west of Avenue P, 800 meters of neighbourhood bikeway, and approximately 1 kilometre of sidewalk to connect residential neighbourhoods with employment areas such as the West Industrial Area, recreation spaces, as well as the Meewasin Trail along the South Saskatchewan River. Completing this key link in the City’s active mobility network will offer residents more urban transportation options and will help promote an active lifestyle in the community.

Funding announced today contributes to Canada’s National Active Transportation Strategy by supporting activities that will help expand networks of sidewalks, pathways, trails and pedestrian bridges.

By investing in infrastructure, the Government of Canada is growing our country’s economy, increasing the resiliency of our communities, and improving the lives of Canadians.
