Highway Construction Paving the Way in the Prince Albert Region

July 27, 2017

Highway construction season is in full swing on many highways in the Prince Albert region, meaning travelers in the area are likely to come across work zones.

“There are a number of highway improvement projects underway in the Prince Albert area, so drivers should plan ahead and be patient when entering a work zone,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister David Marit said.  “Please remember that crews are working to improve the highway for you, so please respect the work zone signage so they get home safely.”

 


Some of the projects currently underway in the Prince Albert region include:

  • 18 kilometres of paving on Highway 3 west of the junction with Highway 55;
  • 28 kilometres of paving at the junction of Highways 55 and 155 Green Lake intersection;
  • 17 kilometres of paving on Highway 55 near Big River;
  • 14 kilometres of paving on Highway 2 between Highways 355 and 263; and
  • 16 kilometres of widening and paving on Highway 2 north of the junction with Highway 312.


There may be cases in work zones when workers are not present that still require you to slow down.  A sharp pavement drop or loose stones are examples of hazards that warrant a slower posted speed.

With construction season underway, be sure to plan ahead by checking the Highway Hotline at www.saskatchewan.ca/highwayhotline.

The weekly construction update is published on www.saskatchewan.ca/residents/transportation/highway-construction-projects/weekly-highway-construction-update.

The Government of Saskatchewan has invested $7.4 billion in transportation infrastructure since 2008, improving more than 12,000 km of Saskatchewan highways.
