Highway Maintenance Includes Repairing, Replacing Signs

Released on September 4, 2014

Weekly Construction Update

Highway crews are repairing and replacing thousands of signs along provincial highways in 2014-15 as part of the government’s regular maintenance.

“Signs are one of the most important safety features we install on the provincial highway system,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Nancy Heppner said.  “They notify drivers of speed limits, control the flow of traffic, and identify curves or other changes in the road.  They are also crucial navigation tools, providing direction to communities, services and tourist opportunities.”

The Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure’s budget for signs in 2014-15 is $3.2 million.  More than 6,000 signs will require repairs and more than 2,000 are to be replaced.  Sign crews work throughout the year.

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/

Additional travel information about emergency road closures, the status of ferries and barges and other road activities can also 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 government has invested a record $4.3 billion in transportation infrastructure since 2008.
