Drivers are advised to be aware of ongoing and upcoming provincial highway construction projects during their Saskatchewan travels to help plan safe and efficient routes to their destinations.
"Please be alert and be cautious when approaching highway construction," Highways and Infrastructure Minister Jim Reiter said. "Remember to obey all flag persons and slow to 60 km/hr when passing highway workers and equipment."
