Construction crews have removed 635,000 kilograms of pigeon feces from the Sid Buckwold Bridge at a cost of $800,000, according to the City of Saskatoon.
The cost of the work is part of the bridge rehabilitation budget. In addition, about 2,300 pigeons were removed and euthanized, the city said in an update on the project.
The pigeons and as well as their droppings needed to be removed because the added weight could potentially compromise the structure of the bridge and also posed a health risk, the city said.
