More Than 100 Kilometres Of Roads To Provincial Parks Being Paved In 2021

Released on September 17, 2020

The Government of Saskatchewan is investing in a number of highways leading to provincial parks in 2021.  These projects are part of the government’s $7.5 billion two-year capital plan to build a strong Saskatchewan and stimulate our economic recovery following the pandemic.

In addition to highway upgrades, as a part of this fall’s record construction plan, more than $2 million of paving will occur within five Saskatchewan Provincial Parks next year, including:

  • Good Spirit Lake; 
  • Great Blue Heron; 
  • Greenwater Lake; 
  • Meadow Lake; and 
  • Rowan’s Ravine.

“We are investing in the highways accessing a number of our beautiful parks to make sure visitors can reach their destination safely and efficiently,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Greg Ottenbreit said.  “This is part of our $7.5 billion two-year capital plan that will help get Saskatchewan people back to work while building infrastructure that will serve the province for decades to come.”

“Saskatchewan people are proud of our beautiful provincial parks,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said.  “This roadwork is happening as a result of two government ministries working together as one team to ensure the best possible experience for park visitors.”
A plan to improve about 50 kilometres (km) of Highway 24 into Chitek Lake was announced earlier this month.

Meanwhile, more than $41 million worth of highway construction continues on several projects near provincial parks this year including:

  • Construction on Highway 219 near Danielson Provincial Park;
  • Paving on Highway 255 near Tobin Lake; and
  • Paving on Highway 265 near Candle Lake Provincial Park.

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 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.
