Event Workshops

TOUR A-1 | NORTH EAST SWALE ENVIRONMENTAL TOUR

October 1, 2018  13:45 - 17:00
Fee: $0.00
Seats Remaining:51

Participants will visit the North East Swale to learn about the ecology of the area and the measures being put in place to protect the prairie landscape.  Highlights include wildlife crossings along roadways and a storm water discharge fore bay. The protection of ecologically unique and sensitive areas within urban development boundaries is an ongoing and important issue for transportation professionals.  A large and significant area of undisturbed natural prairie within the City of Saskatoon is protected from future development, although it cannot fully avoid urban growth. The Saskatchewan River valley was formed by erosion of the landscape by glacial meltwater about 12,000 years ago. During this process several abandoned channels or "swales" were left stranded on the landscape, which formed unique, valued and protected habitat over varying depths of soft, compressible sediment. 

TOUR B-1 | URBAN INTERCHANGES

October 2, 2018  08:30 - 12:00
Fee: $0.00
Seats Remaining:56

Participants will visit two interchanges currently under construction within the City of Saskatoon - Boychuk Drive and Highway 16 and McOrmond Drive and College Drive. These road safety initiatives will ease traffic congestion and collisions, while providing accessible pedestrian and cyclist pathways. A design-build procurement process has been selected to undertake the work. A rock column foundation technique was used in embankment areas in order to reduce the construction time-frame.

TOUR C-1 | RURAL INTERCHANGES / WARMAN AND MARTENSVILLE

October 3, 2018  08:30 - 12:00
Fee: $0.00
Seats Remaining:54

Participants will visit two interchanges currently under construction located north of the City of Saskatoon. The Warman Interchange involves a new two-lane overpass for Highway 305 with on and off ramps, safety upgrades to the rail crossing and the realignment of about 5 km of four-lane divided highway. The Martensville Interchange involves the realignment of 4 km of a four-lane divided highway, a new two-lane overpass for Township Road 384 including on and off ramps as well as the reconfiguration of the Main Street Intersection. An extensive public consultation process took place to inform stakeholders about the project and gather their feedback towards the preliminary design. This is the first design-build procurement project undertaken by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure; the project required the development of new design-build documents and specifications.
