Saskatoon city crews will begin a major project on a busy stretch of Idylwyld Drive Monday.
Water and sewer upgrades along with roadwork between 33rd Street and 39th Street is expected to take three weeks to complete.
During this time crews are set to replace old lead water lines with polyethylene lines.
According to the city, replacing the lines and water mains with a more reliable material can help reduce water main breaks.
Property owners in the area are being encouraged to have outdated pipes replaced at the same time.
Once water and sewer work is completed crews will turn their attention to road resurfacing.
Because of the construction, the city is warning drivers to expect delays because of lane restrictions or find another route.
People who take city transit may be affected during construction by bus stop changes, which will be posted.
