That would be cool but they'll probably stick to the girder option.

What are the other two options they're considering? The four photos they posted look like two different views of two of the options.

If you read a little farther down it tells the criteria that was used on the four designs which was then further reduced to the two that you see.

Thanks for pointing that out. Based on what they say it sounds like a strong case can be made for the cable stayed bridge. That option is much more visually appealing and I can see it becoming a landmark for Saskatoon.

I knew the proposed routing was not going to be very far north, but this latest rendition is much closer to the Chief Mistawasis Bridge crossing than I would have thought.

I think there will eventually be a big problem with traffic cutting through neighbourhood collectors in Aspen Ridge to get from McOrmond over to the proposed Blackley Road exit. Traffic heading from University Heights/Willowgrove over to the Saskatoon Freeway might end up taking that route a lot of the time rather than going all the way to Central.

It seems that the odd bean shaped deflection of McOrmond to create the parkway might have some serious traffic consequences once the Saskatoon Freeway is built.
