PROVINCE WORKS TO ADDRESS FLOOD-DAMAGED HIGHWAYS

Released on July 3, 2014

Weekly Construction Update

As floodwaters in some parts of eastern Saskatchewan begin to recede, engineers and contractors are being deployed to assess damages and create plans to carry out repairs.

“Several highways remain closed and many others are still affected by water, but we’re working to ensure damaged infrastructure is repaired as soon as possible,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Nancy Heppner said.  “Priority will be given to roads with high traffic volumes, roads that provide access to vital facilities such as hospitals, and restoring access to communities that have been isolated by flooding.” 

The latest information about emergency road closures can be found on the Highway Hotline atwww.saskatchewan.ca/live/transportation/highway-hotline.  It's also available by calling 306-787-7623 in Regina, 306-933-8333 in Saskatoon, the SaskTel cellular network at *ROAD, and toll-free across Canada at 1-888-335-7623.  Drivers can also find information about the status of ferries and barges and other road activities on the hotline.

Despite the wet weather, some new construction work is underway in the province this week.  Work is set to begin on a new $4.7-million primary weight supergrid on Highway 361 near Alida.

The weekly construction update provides Saskatchewan residents with the latest details on projects underway to help to plan safe and efficient travel throughout the summer and fall.

To learn more about Saskatchewan work zones, head to www.highways.gov.sk.ca/workzone/. Always slow to 60 km/hr when passing through a highway work zone.

The government has invested a record $4.3 billion in transportation infrastructure since 2008.
