Highways 2020 Plan Means $70 Million Surge for Saskatchewan Highways

Released on June 2, 2016

The Government of Saskatchewan is delivering on its Highways 2020 Plan, delivering a $70 million surge in funding for highways repair and maintenance over the next three years.

$30 million of that total will be invested this year, to repair more than 460 kilometres of highways.

“Beyond benefiting economic activity and employment, this surge will be used to make our roads safer.” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Nancy Heppner said.  “Despite a difficult budget, we will continue to keep Saskatchewan strong by making key infrastructure investments.”

Work includes gravel improvements, dust treatments, repaving, rut filling, and pothole fixes for:

  • Highway 924 from Highway 55 to Dore Lake
  • Highway 26 South of Turtleford
  • Highways 376, 16 and 340 near Hafford, Radisson and Asquith
  • Highway 11 north of Davidson
  • Highways 220 and 322 in the Silton area
  • Highway 1 near Bell Plaine and east of Gull Lake
  • Highway 45 south of Outlook
  • Highway 58 south of Chaplin to Shamrock
  • Highway 43 east of Vanguard
  • Highway 13 east of Assiniboia
  • Highway 15 east of Goodeve to east of Ituna
  • Highway 16 near Maymont
  • Highway 19 north of Hodgeville
  • Highway 21 south of Highway 3
  • Highway 22 west of Highway 35
  • Highway 48 from Highway 8 to east of Wawota
Successful tendering of the work, contractor availability and weather will determine the start of each project.
