Paving Begins on Highway 7 Twinning

Released on September 29, 2016

Paving is underway on the newly twinned section of Highway 7 between Saskatoon and Vanscoy. The first phase of the 25 kilometre project is scheduled to open in time for people travelling to visit family this Thanksgiving weekend. 

“People commuting to work at potash mines in addition to growing interprovincial truck traffic will benefit from this project,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister David Marit said. “The new lanes will improve safety, increase capacity and enhance traffic flow.”

Pre-work for Highway 7 twinning from Vanscoy to Delisle is continuing.  

New highway construction scheduled to begin this week includes surfacing work on Highway 25 near Hagen and culvert installations on Highway 35. Meanwhile, construction has been completed on Highway 1 near Belle Plaine and Highway 35 near Elfros.
