Highway 6 and 39 Corridor Improvements

The Government of Saskatchewan is working to improve safety and efficiency (traffic flow) on Highways 6 and 39 between Regina and the international border.

The entire project includes:

  • 11 sets of passing lanes between Estevan and the South Regina Bypass.
  • Three short segments of twinning where passing lanes aren't feasible, south of Regina, through Corinne and west of Weyburn.
  • Intersection improvements, access consolidations, and service road construction between Estevan and the South Regina Bypass.
  • In 2018, two sets of passing lanes were built on Hwy 6 between Corrine and the South Regina Bypass.
  • In 2020, another six sets of passing lanes were built on Hwy 39. This includes four sets between Hitchcock and Weyburn and two sets between McTaggart and Milestone.

Construction
Motorists can expect major delays on Highway 39 between Estevan and Rouleau as construction crews will be working on the highway throughout the construction season.

North Portal to Weyburn

This contract has:

  • Five sets of passing lanes between Hitchcock and Weyburn;
  • 35 km of paving from North Portal to Bienfait and south of Weyburn;
  • 28 km of shoulder widening from North Portal to southeast of Bienfait;
  • Installation of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS);
  • Culvert replacements; and
  • Various safety improvements.

This past construction season, Coco/Langenburg completed the:

  • Shoulder widening;
  • 23 km of paving from North Portal to Bienfait;
  • Four sets of passing lanes; and
  • Most of the culvert replacements.
  • Another single passing lane was opened to traffic for the winter but still needs another lift of asphalt to be added this upcoming construction season.

Multiple crews will be working on paving/milling, culverts, passing lanes, safety improvements and ITS this upcoming construction season. Construction will continue this year starting in April, with final completion anticipated in June 2021.

McTaggart to Milestone

This contract has:

  • four sets of passing lanes between McTaggart and Milestone;
  • 25 km of paving (McTaggart to southeast of Lang); and
  • Culvert replacements.

This past construction season, ASL completed:

  • Two sets of passing lanes near McTaggart;
  • Shoulder widening;
  • 10 km of the paving from McTaggart to Yellow Grass; and
  • Most of the culvert replacements.
  • They started work on three additional individual passing lanes but weren't able to complete them due to the onset of winter.

Multiple crews will be working on paving/milling, culverts and passing lanes this upcoming construction season. They are planning to start work in April, with final completion anticipated in June 2021.

Corinne to Rouleau
Botkin completed the 32 km of milling and paving from Corinne to Rouleau.

Why passing lanes?
Passing lanes can reduce collisions by 25 per cent at 80 per cent less cost than that of twinning. In recent years, we've completed passing lanes on Highways 2, 5, 6, 7 and 10.
