With more than 30 major construction projects underway in Saskatchewan motorists are reminded to watch for workers and equipment and slow down through the work zone.
Virtually every area of the province has some type of road work underway. Ongoing work includes 50 kilometres of upgrades on various sections of Highway 1 and grading, paving and bridge and culvert repairs throughout the province. When passing through work zones drivers need to obey the posted speed limits of 60 km/hr. This is for the safety of motorists and highway workers.
Additional travel information about emergency road closures, the status of ferries, barges and other road activities can also be found on the Highway Hotline at www.saskatchewan.ca/live/transportation/highway-hotline.
The weekly construction update provides Saskatchewan residents with the latest details on projects underway to help plan safe and efficient travel throughout the summer and fall.
The Government of Saskatchewan has invested a record $5.2 billion in transportation infrastructure since 2008.
