Highway 3 Twinning Project Complete near Prince Albert

Released on November 25, 2022

Today marks the official grand opening for a $21.4 million twinning project on Highway 3. Premier Scott Moe was on hand to mark the occasion today near Prince Albert. The busy highway connects communities northwest of Prince Albert including Shellbrook.

“With the significant growth across our industries, this is an important infrastructure investment,” Premier Moe said. “Not only that, it’s also an important investment into the safety of the thousands of people who travel it every day.”

The 7.5 kilometre (km) twinning project will run from the junction of Highway 2 to the Shell River bridge. The four-lane highway includes a concrete median barrier in the centre of the road, which will reduce the potential for intersection collisions.

“Highway safety is a priority for our government and this investment demonstrates that commitment,” Highways Minister Jeremy Cockrill said. “These improvements will reduce the potential for serious collisions on Highway 3.”

Speeds will be reduced because of the concrete median barriers, including a 70 km/hr speed from the Nordale Access to the city limits and 90 km/hr to the Shell River Bridge.

The Highway 3 safety improvements are in addition to a $9.1 million passing lane project which was completed last fall between Shellbrook and the Shell River Bridge. The six passing lanes opened in October 2021.

The Government of Saskatchewan is keeping its 10-year Growth Plan commitment to build and improve 10,000 km of provincial roads and highways. Planned delivery over the first three years is more than 3,500 km, well ahead of the pace needed to meet our target.

The Government of Saskatchewan has invested $11.5 billion in highways infrastructure since 2008, improving more than 18,400 km of Saskatchewan highways.
