Highway 9 and 10 Corridor Improvements

New passing lanes on Highway 9 and Highway 10 are being constructed near Yorkton.

Traffic volumes are growing in the Yorkton and Melville region and the new passing lanes will provide additional opportunities to pass safely.

This is the first design-build roadway contract in Saskatchewan and includes:

  • six sets of passing lanes;
  • intersection improvements and realignments;
  • access consolidation;
  • 55 km of resurfacing;
  • replacement and upgrading of a significant number of culverts; and
  • intelligent transportation systems such as weather monitoring sensors.

Three sets of passing lanes will be built between Melville and Yorkton on Highway 10 and another three sets will be constructed north of Yorkton to Canora on Highway 9. The project also includes upgrading approximately 4.4 km of Grain Millers Drive within the RM of Orkney.

The cost of the project is about $34.9 million, with a scheduled completion date of October 2020.

An information session was held on October 16, 2019, to explain the project in details to the public. View the boards from that open house.
