Saskatoon’s next city council will have some decisions to make about more than $1 billion in proposed transportation infrastructure projects, which will shape how people get around the city for decades.

A ranked list approved by the current council’s transportation committee this week is topped by $31 million in sidewalk repair and replacement, followed by a series of active transportation corridors in and around downtown, including the Imagine Idylwyld initiative.

The top 10 also includes the 17th Street extension, various intersection improvements, a pedestrian bridge over Canadian National Railway Co.’s tracks along Warman Road, and a $105-million refurbishment of Circle Drive between Clancy Drive and Laurier Drive.

Another project in the top 10 is a bridge at 33rd Street West.

“From our perspective, these are all good projects,” director of transportation Jay Magus said of the list, developed using council-approved criteria including equity, accessibility, safety, traffic flow, network gaps, parking and infill development.
