Summer Highway Safety

Road construction can create frustrating travel delays. Unfortunately, most of the highway work can only be done during spring and summer where there are periods of good weather.

As road beds thaw in the spring, potholes, surface breaks and cracks are common on our highways. These breaks in the road are caused by the expansion (freezing) and contraction (thawing) of water below the surface of the road.
During the spring and in wet conditions, crews work to ensure the highway is safe and passable. More permanent repairs are completed when the subsurface has dried out.

With more than 26,000 km of provincial highways, there can be many “work zones” across Saskatchewan and motorists are reminded that flag persons (traffic control) work to make sure everyone gets by safely. It can be a dangerous job, so please respect the people working in these highway construction areas.
