Intersection Improvements At Kalium Nearing Completion

Released on September 10, 2020

A major intersection safety improvement on Highway 1 near Kalium Road, east of Moose Jaw recently opened up to traffic.

“Safe and efficient travel is crucial for the movement of people and goods,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Greg Ottenbreit said.  “This year’s intersection safety improvement projects include new turning lanes, lighting, clearing of sight lines and installation of rumble strips.”

The $5.2 million project at Kalium Road includes the addition of high-speed entrance and exit ramps, which will move turns away from the intersection to help travelers make left turns safely.  The project also includes extending the turning lanes on Highway 1.  There will be a transition period as temporary signs are replaced with more permanent signage.  Drivers are reminded to watch for workers and equipment during this time and to obey posted speeds.

The Kalium Road project is one of more than 60 intersection improvements announced in the spring of last year and is part of a five‐year $100 million commitment to enhance safety province-wide.

Construction recently began on intersection improvements on Highway 11 near Davidson.  Safety improvements also continue on Highway 1 near the junction with Highway 37 and on Highway 4 near the junction with Highway 379 near Swift Current.

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.

The Government of Saskatchewan will improve more than 1,000 kilometres (km) of provincial highways this year, the first of its 10-year Growth Plan goal to build and upgrade 10,000 km of highways.

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.  Another $300 million in highways stimulus funds will be invested over the next two years to stimulate Saskatchewan’s economic recovery.
