Major Infrastructure Projects Underway in Central & West Central Saskatchewan

More than $90 million worth of construction is in progress in central and west central areas of Saskatchewan, which includes major capital investments such as twinning and maintenance work like seal coating.

Saskatchewan highways projects include:

  • Construction on new passing lanes on Highway 4 between North Battleford and Cochin;

  • Grading for future twinning around Vanscoy on Highway 7;

  • Construction of new overpasses on Highways 11 and 12 near Martensville and Warman;

  • Surfacing on Highway 26 and several culvert installations between the Vawn access and Edam;

  • About 10 km of surface improvements on Highway 51 about 10 km west of the Highway 4 junction; and

  • Seal coating near Glaslyn and Macklin.

Drivers need to obey signs, stay alert and slow to 60 km/hr through the work zone. There may be cases in work zones where workers are not present that require you to slow down. A sharp pavement drop or loose stones during a seal coat are examples of hazards that warrant a slower posted speed. A weekly highway construction update is also published on www.saskatchewan.ca/residents/transportation/highway-construction-projects/weekly-highway-construction-update to provide the travelling public with the latest details on projects underway to help plan safe and efficient travel. You can also report a highway work zone signing problem by calling 306-244-5535. If you’re planning to travel, check the Highway Hotline at www.saskatchewan.ca/highwayhotline, which provides up-to-date information on construction, emergency road closures, the status of ferries, barges and other road activities. Information is also available by calling 511. The Government of Saskatchewan has invested more than $8.4 billion in highways and infrastructure since 2008, improving more than 13,000 kilometres of Saskatchewan highways.
