East Central Saskatchewan Busy With Highway Construction

Released on July 12, 2018

The Provincial Government announced $9 million worth of construction underway in east central Saskatchewan, which includes bridge work, culvert replacements, paving and maintenance.

“Making investments in highways and infrastructure across the province is a priority for our government,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister David Marit said.  “With this work in the east central area, I remind travellers to pay attention in work zones, obey signs and slow down, so everyone can get home safely.”



Some of the construction the east central area this week includes:
  • Bridge construction on Highway 5 east of Quill Lake;
  • Surfacing on Highway 6 north of the Highway 16 junction;
  • About 20 km of surfacing near Raymore on Highway 6 north of Highway 15;
  • Two culvert installations near Cote First Nation on Highway 8; and
  • Surfacing of about 23 km of Highway 47 north of Melville.
Travellers need to obey signs, stay alert and slow to 60 km/hr through the work zone.  There may be cases in other work zones when workers are not present that require you to slow down.  A sharp pavement drop or loose stones during a seal coat are examples of hazards that warrant a slower posted speed.

If you’re planning to travel, check the Highway Hotline at www.saskatchewan.ca/highwayhotline, which 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 511.

A weekly highway construction update is also published on www.saskatchewan.ca/residents/transportation/highway-construction-projects/weekly-highway-construction-update to provide the travelling public with the latest details on projects underway to help plan safe and efficient travel.  You can also report a highway work zone signing problem by calling 306-244-5535.

The Government of Saskatchewan has invested more than $8 billion in transportation infrastructure since 2008, improving more than 12,000 km of Saskatchewan highways.
