The Government of Saskatchewan allows grieving individuals or family members to commemorate the loss of a loved one by placing a memorial marker in the highway right-of-way. We request that commemorative markers follow these principles:
- Ensure traffic safety and traffic flow
- Allow for effective highway and right-of-way maintenance
- Avoid creating legal liability for the government
- Comply with The Saskatchewan Highways and Transportation Act
- Markers must not obstruct sight lines, and must be at least 100 metres from any intersection.
- Markers must be located at the outer edge of the highway right-of-way.
- If a fence line exists, the marker should be located adjacent to the fence if a tree line exists, the marker should be located adjacent to the tree line.
- Markers must be constructed to be easily knocked down on impact. They cannot be cemented into a base.
- Markers should be reasonable in size and not exceed 80 cm in height by 60 cm in width.
- Markers must not have flashing lights, reflective tape or any other material or ornamentation that could distract a driver.
- Markers will be allowed for fatal accident sites only, and only one marker will be allowed per accident site.
- Installation and maintenance of markers will be at the expense of the party wishing to place the marker.
- The Government of Saskatchewan will not be responsible for any damage that may occur to the marker once erected. This includes damage caused by highway maintenance, snow removal, upgrading or by vandalism, theft or any other circumstance.
- Markers within the incorporated boundaries of a town with a population greater than 1,000 shall be at the discretion of the urban authority.
