Highway Hotline's Summer Shift

Released on April 29, 2016

Before departing on your summer road trip remember to check Saskatchewan’s Highway Hotline.

“Motorists will begin to see more work on provincial highways as construction season nears,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Nancy Heppner said.  “The Highway Hotline can help you plan a safer and more efficient route to your holiday destination.”

During warmer months the Highway Hotline’s interactive map will have additional pylons to illustrate construction, along with other icons for various restrictions such as flooding and forest fires, if required.  Icons for provincial ferry crossings, highway cameras, national and provincial parks and Canada-United States border crossings are also on the map.


The Highway Hotline website receives more than four million visits each year.  The most active day in the summer of 2015 was June 29, when 15,725 people checked the Highway Hotline.  The Highway Hotline is also available on social media.  The Facebook page (www.facebook.com/SaskatchewanHighwayHotline) provides general tips and information and has more than 46,000 likes.   The Highway Hotline Twitter account (www.twitter.com/SKGovHwyHotline) provides travel alerts, along with ferry openings and closings and has more than 28,000 followers.

You can access the Highway Hotline’s interactive map and text reports online at www.saskatchewan.ca/highwayhotline, while mobile device users can access the same information at http://hotline.gov.sk.ca/mobile.  Please remember it is illegal to use hand-held cellular phones in Saskatchewan while driving.

Recorded reports are available by calling 306-787-7623 in Regina, 306-933-8333 in Saskatoon, the SaskTel cellular network at *ROAD, and toll-free across Canada at 1-888-335-7623.
