Slow Down Through Work Zones so the Thirteenth Man Can Get Home Safely

Released on June 14, 2018

As another Saskatchewan Roughrider season kicks off and game day approaches, the thirteenth man is reminded to slow down through work zones.  With construction work underway around the province, fans travelling to Regina for the home opener this Friday are likely to pass through a construction zone.

“Safety on our highways is a priority for our government, especially within our work zones,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister David Marit said.  “Please allow for extra time to get to the game, follow the posted signage, slowdown in work zones, and of course, enjoy the football game!”

“Like our fans, we are looking forward to the opportunities ahead for the 2018 CFL season,” Roughriders offensive lineman Brendon LaBatte said.  “As fans begin their descent toward Mosaic Stadium, we want to remind all of Rider Nation to please drive carefully and always plan a safe ride home.”

If travellers come across an inappropriately signed work zone, you can report it by contacting 306-244-5535.

Some of the highway construction work in the Regina area this week includes:

  • Construction of the Regina Bypass;
  • Passing lanes on Highway 6 south of Regina;
  • Resurfacing of the southbound lanes on Highway 11 between Chamberlain and Aylesbury;
  • Surfacing on Highway 35 from north of junction Highway 10 at Fort Qu'Appelle to junction Highway 22 near Lipton; and
  • Surfacing on Highway 322 near Silton south of the Glen Harbour Access.
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.

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.

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.
