Highway 7 Twinning Coming Soon

Released on March 12, 2015

The twinning of one of Saskatchewan’s most important highways is getting a boost with a major funding commitment from the federal government.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Premier Brad Wall announced today that the federal government will fund half the eligible costs to twin 25 km of Highway 7 from Saskatoon to Delisle, to a maximum of $32 million.

“Highway 7 is an important route for Saskatchewan that connects our largest city to growing communities like Delisle, Rosetown and Kindersley, as well as to export markets,” Wall said.  “Twinning will address the safety and congestion concerns that are a result of Saskatchewan’s remarkable economic and population growth.”

Twinning Highway 7 is expected to begin this spring with grading work between Saskatoon to just east of Vanscoy.  Additional work will be scheduled as planning work is completed.  Work on the entire 25 km could be completed as soon as fall of 2018.


Planning work for route options in the immediate vicinity of Vanscoy continues, including consultation with the community.

“Traffic on this part of Highway 7 has increased by 50 per cent in the last decade,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Nancy Heppner said.  “This project is an example of our government’s commitment to ensuring growth improves everyone’s quality of life.”

Other major highway projects that improve safety include:
  • recently completed twinning of Highway 11 from Saskatoon to Prince Albert and passing lanes on Highway 10 between Balgonie and Fort Qu’Appelle;
  • ongoing work on twinning Highway 16 from Saskatoon to Clavet and passing lanes on Highway 7 between Delisle and Rosetown; and
  • planning for the future twinning of Highway 6 and 39 from Regina to the US border.
