Work Continues Through Winter Season for Highway Workers

Released on October 30, 2014

Weekly Construction Update

As highway paving tapers off this fall, highway winter work kicks into high gear at bridge and culvert sites across Saskatchewan.

“Cold winter weather is a positive when it comes to certain types of construction,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Nancy Heppner said.  “Freeze up allows cost-effective work on bridges as platforms can be placed on ice.  We are also able to continue culvert replacements.”

In addition, gravel hauling takes place over the winter to minimize impact on frozen highways in preparation for next year’s construction season.   

Motorists are reminded to watch for workers and equipment during the winter months.  And always slow to 60 km/hr when passing through work zones.  To learn more about Saskatchewan work zones, head to www.highways.gov.sk.ca/workzone/.

This is the final weekly construction update for the 2014 season.

Additional travel information about emergency road closures, the status of ferries and barges and other road activities can be found on the Highway Hotline 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.

The Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure will issue media advisories about highway activities impacting traffic as required.

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