Road Work in Southeast Saskatchewan Kicks Into High Gear

Released on June 7, 2018

More than $29 million worth of construction work on more than 100 kilometres (km) of southeastern Saskatchewan highways is set to take place this week.

“Our government has made highways and infrastructure a priority for the people of Saskatchewan,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister David Marit said.  “We know the construction season is short and we have lots of work to do so, if you are travelling, please be patient, allow for extra time and respect the work zones.”

This week’s work in southeast Saskatchewan includes:
  • $7.5 million of surfacing on about 27 km of Highway 2 north of Moose Jaw;
  • $4.8 million of surfacing on about 30 km of Highway 13 near Weyburn;
  • $10 million of surfacing on about 28 km on Hwy 35 and 39 near Weyburn; and
  • $7.1 million of surfacing on about 25 km of Highway 36 south of Willow Bunch.
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.

A weekly highway construction update is also published on www.saskatchewan.ca/residents/transportation/highway-construction-projects/weekly-highway-construction-update to provide the travelling public with the latest details on projects underway to help plan safe and efficient travel.  You can also report a highway work zone signing problem by calling 306-244-5535.

Travellers need to obey signs, stay alert and slow to 60 km/hr through the work zone.  There may be cases in other work zones when workers are not present that require you to slow down.  A sharp pavement drop or loose stones during a seal coat are examples of hazards that warrant a slower posted speed.

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