New Passing Lanes For Highway 2 North Of Moose Jaw

Released on September 13, 2018

New passing lanes north of Moose Jaw will result in more opportunities to pass for motorists travelling to Buffalo Pound Provincial Park next season.

About 3,700 vehicles travel daily on Highway 2 between Moose Jaw and the Highway 202 junction, which is an increase of about 600 cars per day since 2008.  One set of passing lanes will be built about seven kilometers north of the city to just south of the junction.  The passing lanes project is being tendered with plans for construction in 2019.

In recent years, construction has been completed on passing lanes on Highway 10 and Highway 7 with work currently underway on Highway 6 south of Regina.

“Passing lanes improve safety and are more cost effective than twinning,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Lori Carr said.  “We want to help folks driving north of Moose Jaw to travel safe, while at the same time improving traffic flow.”

Construction continues on several projects around the province including:

  • subgrade and surfacing for two sets of passing lanes on Highway 4 between North Battleford and Cochin;
  • Highway 6 passing lanes from about 6 kilometres (km) north of the Highway 39 junction to just south of the junction with Highway 306;
  • seal coating on Highways near Rosetown, Macklin and Muenster; and
  • construction begins on the replacement of three culverts of Highway 106 near Ballantyne Bay.
When driving through a work zone remember to obey signs, stay alert and slow to 60 km/hr, even if workers aren’t present.  Work zones may contain driving hazards, like sharp pavement drop or loose stones, which require you to slow down.

A weekly highway construction update is 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.  If you see a highway work zone signing problem, you can report it by calling 306-244-5535.

Check the Highway Hotline at www.saskatchewan.ca/highwayhotline, before you hit the road.  It 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.

The Government of Saskatchewan has invested more than $8.4 billion in highways and infrastructure since 2008, improving more than 13,000 kilometres of Saskatchewan highways.
