The Government of Saskatchewan continues to develop a long-term transportation plan to ensure the safe movement of people as well as goods and services.
Transportation planning will help provide an evaluation of the safety and efficiency of the current highway network, while identifying future traffic requirements to address growth or other anticipated changes. This is often the first step in a process aimed at improving highways, service roads, overpasses, bypasses, etc.
Planning studies are usually done by third-party professional engineering consultants and will always include public consultation. The studies may lead to immediate short-term, mid- or longer-term major highway construction designed to improve safety and efficiency.
There are several multi-year construction projects throughout the province designed to improve transportation safety across Saskatchewan's highway network.
