Roads to Saskatchewan Lakes to Be Upgraded

Released on July 28, 2016

Highway work planned and underway will make for a smoother drive to your lake, campsite or other tourist destination.

“Saskatchewan lakes are known for their beauty,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Nancy Heppner said.  “With a record Highways and Infrastructure budget of $1.15 billion, and a $30 million surge in funding due to the Highways 2020 Plan, we are pleased many roads to your favourite summer destinations will be improved.”

Improvements include grading, paving, spot improvements, rut filling and bridge construction.  Work also includes notching, widening, structural upgrades and paving on Highway 26, leading to Loon Lake, as seen in the photo.


Leading into August long weekend, work on highways or bridges near recreational areas includes:
  • Highway 2 near Diefenbaker Bridge leading to various lake destinations including Prince Albert National Park;
  • Highway 21 near Maple Creek near Cypress Hills;
  • Highway 26 near Loon Lake;
  • Highway 42 from Keeler to Eyebrow leading to Douglas and Danielson Provincial Parks;
  • Highway 55 southeast of Green Lake leading to various lake destinations;
  • Highway 56 at the Pasqua Lake Access;
  • Highway 120 near Candle Lake;
  • Highway 263 near Christopher Lake; and
  • Highways 322 and 220 leading to Last Mountain Lake.
Future projects, under the Highways 2020 plan, include:
  • Highway 45 south of Outlook near Danielson Provincial Park.
A photo gallery featuring current work can be found at www.highways.gov.sk.ca/2016construction.
