Highway 5 Twinning Project

Two lane highway with canola fields on the right and left sides.

The Ministry of Highways continues to work on safety and capacity improvements to Highway 5 between Saskatoon and Highway 2. At the time of this engagement, work further east on the corridor had already taken place.

The last phase of the project was in design in the summer of 2021. This phase included twinning of the highway for 10 km immediately east of Saskatoon. This section will also included a number of safety and capacity improvements such as:

  • Repaving;
  • Sight-line improvements;
  • Access consolidation;
  • Intersection realignment;
  • Intersection treatments; and
  • Culvert replacements.

What did we need from you?

Folks were asked to visit highway5.saskatchewan.ca and review the proposed information for the proposed improvements between May 21 and June 4, 2021. Once the information was reviewed, citizens were asked to fill out the feedback section.

Who took this survey?

Anyone and everyone who uses this road was welcome to share their thoughts. Whether you lived in the area, traveled on this highway regularly or just occasionally passed through – we wanted to hear from you!
