Meewasin Primary Trail Infrastructure Upgrades - River Landing to the Weir: Phase 1A from Queen Street to the Riverworks weir (Duke Street) is now open. Phase 1B will continue the trail upgrade from Queen Street south to the Mendel parking lot. Phase 1B is planned for the spring of 2018 and will address significant safety issues on the trail including narrow width, steep grades (non-accessible), proximity to the street, blind corners and encroaching vegetation. 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.
