New Passing Lanes Open Between Delisle and Rosetown

Released on October 2, 2014

The signs are up and the pavement lines have been marked for the first set of passing lanes on Highway 7 between Delisle and Rosetown.  

“The first lanes opened to traffic today,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Nancy Heppner said.  “The passing lanes increase traffic capacity and improve safety by providing more opportunities to pass slower moving vehicles.  This project is one more example of our government investing in infrastructure to address a growing province and expanding economy.”

The Highway 7 passing lane project will ultimately consist of four sets of passing lanes for a total of 16 kilometres.  The project is scheduled to be complete during the 2015 construction season.  

The cost of the project is $8.9 million with the Government of Canada contributing approximately $3.8 million under the New Building Canada Fund.
 
When using passing lanes, drivers need to stay in the right lane except when passing other vehicles.  Yellow signs clearly alert drivers that they should merge back into the left hand lane 300 metres before the end of the passing lane.  Motorists are reminded to watch for traffic changing lanes and to be courteous as the passing lane ends.

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