Repairs kicked off Tuesday on a busy stretch of road in Saskatoon.
The northbound part of the Circle Drive overpass at 33rd Street will undergo major repairs for the next two-and-a-half months.
That means the freeway will be down to one lane for drivers heading north, but won’t affect those going south.
TRAFFIC: Work now underway on the northbound Circle Dr. overpass at 33rd St.
Signs well in advance say Zipper Merge and Use Both Lanes. Traffic slows to 60 km/h in the work zone, which will be in effect the next 2.5 months. Video has been sped up; total trip took 1:30 min. #yxe pic.twitter.com/OmJvTTTXY6

CKOM’s Daniella Ponticelli reported traffic back-ups to 22nd Street during the morning commute on Tuesday.
The project will include removing and replacing asphalt, along with repairs to the deck and expansion joint.
The overpass, built in the 1990s is used daily by roughly 20,000 vehicles.
