Meewasin Primary Trail Infrastructure Upgrades - River Landing to the Weir: Phase 1 from the Mendel to the Riverworks weir is planned for construction in 2017, starting in May subject to favorable weather conditions and contractor availability. Construction may be phased subject to available funding. Work includes widening and improvements for accessibility to the trail, bench seating areas, grading, retaining walls, planting and turf. Some existing vegetation will be impacted to allow for trail construction, and to open up river views at seating nodes. This work will be done in conjunction with upgrades planned by Saskatoon Light & Power at the Queen Street intersection. For more information on the proposed improvements please see below. Trail users will be detoured around the construction site, using the sidewalk west of Spadina Crescent.
