Tackle Safety This Labour Day Weekend

Released on August 31, 2017

The Government of Saskatchewan and the Saskatchewan Roughriders would like to remind Rider Nation to plan a safe ride home this Labour Day weekend and slow to 60 km/hr when driving through work zones.

“There will be many fans on our highways this weekend travelling to the Labour Day classic,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister David Marit said.  “We remind travellers to be patient, travel safely through orange zones and respect our highways workers.”

The long weekend means increased traffic on our roads and highways due to Rider fans heading to the Labour Day Classic football game and others getting in some last minute camping.

“Labour Day is one of the most celebrated weekends for CFL football and we want to share it with all of Rider Nation,” veteran Roughriders offensive lineman Brendon LaBatte said.  “Whether you are travelling to Mosaic Stadium or anywhere around our province, please drive carefully and always plan a safe ride home.”

Football fans heading to the game on Sunday, September 3 should be aware of some highway traffic delays as they make their way to Regina — Highway 1 east between Regina and Balgonie, Highway 1 west near Pinkie Road, Highway 11 north to Saskatoon and Highway 6 south to Weyburn.

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

Remember to check the Highway Hotline at www.saskatchewan.ca/highwayhotline or the weekly construction update at www.saskatchewan.ca/residents/transportation/highway-construction-projects/weekly-highway-construction-update for the latest construction projects underway to help plan safe and efficient travel.

The Government of Saskatchewan has invested $7.4 billion in transportation infrastructure since 2008, improving more than 12,000 km of Saskatchewan highways.
