Saskatonians are revving their engines as the largest construction project in the city’s history is wrapping up.

Circle Drive South—a $300-million bridge and freeway project that will include five interchanges, the south bridge river crossing and 10 kilometres of freeway—will be ready by July 31, according to a report in The StarPhoenix.

Work on walking and cycling paths is ongoing, and a few signs and road markings still need to be finished. Most of the paving is being done over the next 10 days then the entire site will be safety inspected.

The project was supposed to be finished in September 2012 but contractors were setback by three of the wettest years on record.

With the delayed opening Graham-Flatiron Construction could face a penalty of up to $10,000 per day.
