Check the Highway Hotline for Current Construction Activity

Released on June 12, 2014

Weekly Construction Update

Motorists are reminded that the latest information about highway construction activity is available on the Highway Hotline.

“The Highway Hotline is a tremendously popular and useful tool during the winter months when weather conditions present driving hazards,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Nancy Heppner said.  “People may not be aware that it contains information about construction activity, emergency road closures, the status of ferries and other road activities during the spring and summer as well.  Simply click the construction icons on the map to find the latest information about the type of work underway, as well as any potential hazards or delays.”

The Highway Hotline can be found at www.saskatchewan.ca/live/transportation/highway-hotline.  It's also available by calling 306-787-7623 in Regina, 306-933-8333 in Saskatoon, the SaskTel cellular network at *ROAD, and toll-free across Canada at 1-888-335-7623.

New projects underway in the province this week include a realignment of Highway 40 west of North Battleford, and grading and paving on Highway 42 from Marquis to Keeler and Highway 302 east of Prince Albert.

The weekly construction update provides Saskatchewan residents with the latest details on projects underway 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.
