Work Continuing on Highway 7 Twinning Near Vanscoy

Released on July 5, 2018


The Government of Saskatchewan is pleased to announce that more than $20 million worth of highway construction work is progressing along Highway 7 in the Vanscoy and Delisle area.

“The Government of Saskatchewan is committed to investments like twinning and passing lanes that will enhance safety, while increasing capacity and improving traffic flow,” Minister of Highways and Infrastructure David Marit said.  “Highway 7 is a key trade route for shippers in the province.”

Construction includes $9.5 million of grading on 12 km of highway around the community of Vanscoy, and another $11.7 million for paving on about 13 km of newly constructed lanes east of Delisle to Vanscoy.  This work is in addition to the nine kilometres of newly twinned road between Saskatoon and Vanscoy that opened to traffic in October 2016.

Since 2007, traffic volumes have increased by about 1,000 vehicles per day on Highway 7, and range from 5,100 at Delisle to about 7,500 vehicles per day near the City of Saskatoon.

“Our community is looking forward to the completion of this project,” Delisle Mayor Dave Anderchek said.  “It will be peace of mind for the people of Delisle who have to travel frequently to the City of Saskatoon.”

A weekly highway construction update is published on www.saskatchewan.ca/residents/transportation/highway-construction-projects/weekly-highway-construction-update which provides travelers with the latest details on projects underway to help plan safe and efficient travel.

If you’re planning to travel, check the Highway Hotline at www.saskatchewan.ca/highwayhotline, which provides up-to-date information on construction, emergency road closures, the status of ferries, barges and other road activities.  Information is also available by calling 511.

The Government of Saskatchewan has invested more than $8 billion in transportation infrastructure since 2008, improving more than 12,000 km of Saskatchewan highways.
