New Intersection Safety Improvements For Highway 11 At Davidson

Released on July 23, 2020

A highway intersection safety improvement will get underway this summer at the south end of Davidson on Highway 11.

“Our government is pleased to begin the second year of our five-year $65 million, Enhanced Intersection Safety Program, which is improving safety at key intersection across the province,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Greg Ottenbreit said.  “The safety improvements at Davidson will reduce the number of collisions at this busy intersection, and are a prime example of our government’s commitment to safety.”

Construction crews will be building two acceleration lanes for a total distance of 1.52 kilometres at the junction of Railway Street, just south of Davidson.  The project will cost $916,000 with work expected to begin in August with completion set for September.

Between the Enhanced Intersection Safety Program and the Safety Improvement Program (SIP), the total 5-year investment for intersection safety is $100 million.

Additional intersection improvements are planned around the province including Highway 3 east of Prince Albert, Kalium Access on Highway 1 between Regina and Moose Jaw and Highway 342 south of Plato.  In addition to the enhanced intersection safety investments, another $7 million will be spent through SIP to reduce the frequency and severity of collisions on Highway 155 in Buffalo Narrows, Highway 14 east of Biggar and Highway 20 at Lumsden.

This year, the Government of Saskatchewan has plans to improve more than 1,000 kilometres of provincial highways, the first year of our 10-year Growth Plan goal to build and upgrade 10,000 km of highways.
