The Children’s Hospital of Saskatchewan (CHS) construction site was busy over the Easter weekend as crews completed the installation of pilings near the Royal University Hospital parkade vehicle entrance on Hospital Drive.

Because of this work, the parkade entrance had to be closed and traffic re-routed to the entrance located next to the Saskatoon Cancer Centre on the University of Saskatchewan campus.

“This was very important work that needed to get done, and thanks to the cooperation of the public and of staff, the construction crews from Graham were able to complete the work in good time.”

The crews were able to get the entrance to the parkade open early, before 6 p.m. on Easter Monday, a full 12 hours ahead of schedule.
