Repaving Underway on Busy Stretch of Highway 11 Near Hague

Released on August 7, 2014

Weekly Construction Update

Crews are hard at work on a $5.5 million repaving project on Highway 11 north of Saskatoon near Hague.

“Highway 11 serves a growing number of shippers, tourists and other motorists” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Nancy Heppner said.  “That’s why we’re continuing to invest in this crucial gateway to northern Saskatchewan.  Remember to always slow to 60 km/hr when passing through the work zone so this important work can be carried out as safely as possible.”

Southbound traffic will be reduced to one lane during construction and drivers should watch for equipment and workers.  Completion of the project is targeted for this fall, subject to weather.

The final phase of Highway 11 twinning was completed in 2013, meaning Saskatchewan’s three largest cities – Regina, Saskatoon and Prince Albert – are now connected by four-lane divided highway.  The repaving at Hague is taking place on the older, southbound lanes.

The weekly construction update provides Saskatchewan residents with the latest details on current projects to help plan safe and efficient travel throughout the summer and fall.  To learn more about Saskatchewan work zones, head to www.highways.gov.sk.ca/workzone/

The government has invested a record $4.3 billion in transportation infrastructure since 2008.
