Work Zone Safety Tackles Offensive Driving This Long Weekend

Released on June 30, 2016

Roughrider fans wearing green should watch for orange as they travel this Canada Day long weekend.  With 300 kilometres of Saskatchewan highways currently under construction, people should drive carefully and watch for work zones.

As the Regina Bypass begins to take shape, a number of construction projects are underway on Highway 1, east of Regina.  Fans driving to the game on Highway 1 east should leave themselves extra travel time.

“We are tackling a number of large projects that address immediate needs on our highway network,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Nancy Heppner said.  “We expect an increase in traffic over the long weekend; remember the Highway Hotline is a great tool to help plan your route before setting out.”

The Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure uses a number of safety devices like signs, flag people, and portable rumble strips in work zones.  These devices are put in place to assist motorists with safe navigation through construction sites.  Motorists also play an essential role in safety and are reminded to drive diligently, watch for signs and slow down.

A photo gallery featuring current work can be found at www.highways.gov.sk.ca/2016construction.

If you’re planning a trip this summer, check the Highway Hotline at http://hotline.gov.sk.ca/map/.  The Highway Hotline provides up-to-date information on construction, emergency road closures, the status of ferries, barges and other road activities.

Information is also available by calling 306-787-7623 in Regina, 306-933-8333 in Saskatoon and toll-free across Canada at 1-888-335-7623.

The Government of Saskatchewan has invested $6.3 billion in transportation infrastructure since 2008, improving more than 11,000 kilometres of Saskatchewan roads.
