Report On Intersection Review Released

Released on December 12, 2018

A traffic engineering review into safety at the intersection of Highways 35 and 335 is complete and the final report is now publicly available.

The purpose of the study was to review the geometric, collision, traffic and human factor characteristics of the intersection, identify any issues that could increase the risk of collisions at the intersection and recommend improvements that may reduce those risks.

The review was commissioned in the aftermath of the tragic accident involving the Humboldt Broncos this past April in which 16 people lost their lives and another 13 were injured.

Government’s standard practice is to conduct an internal traffic engineering review following any fatal collision on the provincial highway system.  Given the seriousness of this collision and the significant attention paid to it, the Ministry of Justice commissioned an independent consulting engineer to conduct the review.

The report made 13 recommendations to improve the overall safety of the intersection.  The Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure will implement all 13 recommendations, reconfirming the previous government commitment to implement all recommendations resulting from the review.

Since this issue is before the courts, the Government of Saskatchewan will not comment further on the report.

In order to inform the public of the report’s review and recommendations, the Government of Saskatchewan waives litigation privilege with respect to the report itself, but reserves all other claims of privilege.
