Slow Down And Stay Safe This Canada Day

Released on June 25, 2020

With Canada Day approaching the Government of Saskatchewan is reminding travelers to watch for construction zones and plan ahead so you reach your destination safely.

“Our government continues to make significant investments in highways and infrastructure to get our products to market and citizens to their destinations safely,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Greg Ottenbreit said.  “With construction season in full swing, people going to the lake or visiting friends this Canada Day weekend can expect to see construction zones.  So please plan ahead, pay close attention, and slow down for everyone’s safety.”

All drivers need to obey signs and flag persons and slow to 60 km/h through the work zone.  They can also check the Highway Hotline for road construction, prior to leaving for their destination.  In some cases, work zones have temporary speed reductions left in place when workers are not present.  This is because there are other hazards such as sharp pavement drop-offs, lane closures and loose gravel.

Work will occur in virtually every region of the province including passing lanes, paving, seal coating, intersection improvements and bridges including about $6.8 million worth of paving, scheduled to begin next week on Highway 6 north of Regina.  The 19 kilometres of paving includes ramps on the Highway 11 Pasqua Street overpass.  Ramp closures are anticipated to occur nightly, during construction, until mid-July.

A weekly construction update provides Saskatchewan residents with the latest details on projects underway to help plan safe and efficient travel throughout the summer and fall.  Additional travel information about emergency road closures, the status of ferries, barges and other road activities can also be found on the Highway Hotline at www.saskatchewan.ca/Highwayhotline

Information and concerns about a provincial highway can be made by calling 1-844-SK-HIWAY.

The Government of Saskatchewan has invested more than $9.8 billion in highways infrastructure since 2008, improving more than 15,800 km of Saskatchewan highways.
