The Government of Saskatchewan, through the Ministry of Highways, is in the midst of a multi-year functional planning study that will determine how the Saskatoon Freeway will look and operate. This freeway is expected to be a four-lane, 55-kilometre stretch of divided highway that begins at Highway 11 south of Saskatoon and connects with Highway 7 west of the city.
The second online public information session for Phase 2 of the Saskatoon Freeway Functional Planning Study took place in February 2022 and provided details on the preferred route and interchange configurations chosen for the Phase 2 portion (highlighted in green below) of the freeway.
Visitors to the information session were able to share feedback through surveys and ask questions through a LiveChat staffed by project experts.
When Phase 2 of the functional study is finalized, the land needed for the freeway will be identified and some temporary restrictions will be lifted. Residents and businesses along the freeway corridor will get a better understanding of where and how they may be impacted.
Currently, there is no timetable for a final decision regarding the freeway's construction.
