24/7 Winter Service Now Available on Highway Hotline

Released on November 2, 2015

With winter approaching, the Saskatchewan Highway Hotline is upgrading services to winter standards.  The hotline will now report conditions 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

“This time of the year, road conditions can change rapidly,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Nancy Heppner said.  “The Highway Hotline provides up-to-date road information so travellers can plan their trips safely.”

The Highway Hotline is updated a minimum of three times per day, with additional updates provided as weather requires.

The hotline map is colour-coded according to highway conditions.  Users are reminded to click on specific sections of highway to get detailed information.

The Highway Hotline operates year round.  Updates outside of winter provide information on road construction, closures or other changes caused by natural disasters such as flooding events or forest fires.

To access the Highway Hotline visit www.saskatchewan.ca/residents/transportation/highways/highway-hotline.  You can also contact the Highway Hotline by calling 1-888-335-7623.  Also, visit the Saskatchewan Highway Hotline Facebook page for other important information or follow us on twitter @SkGovHwyHotline to receive updates on roads that are closed or not recommended for travel.

The Highway Hotline is the most used Government of Saskatchewan internet resource, with more than five million visitors last year.
