The City of Saskatoon is advising motorists that traffic on Idylwyld Drive will be down to one lane in either direction between 24th and 27th Streets today.

Construction begins today at 9 am, as crews start extending 25th Street west to Idylwyld Drive.

Northbound lanes will be closed between 24th and 27th Streets. Southbound lanes are also restricted, with traffic down to one lane in each direction.

City officials say they expect the construction will last approximately four months.
