Saskatoon awards contracts to implement growth plan

Saskatoon City Council has kicked off its growth plan by awarding contracts including one for design work on the future bus rapid transit (BRT) system.

The city is moving forward with implementation of its Growth Plan to Half a Million, which includes proposals for a re-envisioned transit system based around BRT and infill at strategic locations in the city.  Following approval of the plan in April, the city created a ten-year action plan to advance a number of the growth plan’s core initiatives.

In preparation for a public launch this fall, the council has now awarded contracts for the planning and design of the BRT system and the development of city-wide engagement with the growth plan.

HDR, with subconsultants CIMA+ and Dillon Consulting, will work on detailed planning and design for Saskatoon’s city-wide BRT Transit and conventional transit system.

Planning and engagement firm, O2 Planning + Design, will work with the City to develop in-person and online engagement in support of multiple growth plan projects.

Both firms achieved the highest scores in competitive bid-processes.

City Administration will make two additional recommendations in August for contracts relating to the transit village concept design along the BRT lines, and a brownfield renewal strategy in support of the corridor growth program.
