Saskatoon Freeway

A future freeway around the City of Saskatoon would improve traffic flow, alleviate congestion and improve safety. The Government of Saskatchewan, through the Ministry of Highways, has entered the functional planning stage. This will help determine how the Saskatoon Freeway will look and operate.

Feedback is vital to any provincial project, and we appreciate your participation. More than 215 people attended two information sessions in Saskatoon in November 2019. All discussions and feedback will help inform the eventual design concepts for Phase One of the Saskatoon Freeway Functional Planning Study.

The Public Information Sessions focused on concepts for:

  • Highway 11, Wanuskewin Road and Penner Road;
  • Highway 12 interchange; and
  • Highway 16 interchange.

This Saskatoon 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 functional planning study will consider the placement of 16 interchanges, five railway overpasses, two flyovers and one major river crossing. The study is scheduled to be completed in 2021.

Currently, there is no timetable for a final decision regarding the freeway's construction.
