Major Safety Improvements to Highway 7 Corridor
Construction on twinning and passing lanes continues on Highway 7 between Saskatoon and the Alberta border.
“Highway 7 is a major economic corridor for our province, connecting communities such as Kindersley, Rosetown, Delisle and Saskatoon,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Lori Carr said. “The new twinning and passing lanes will improve safety and help grow the economy in these communities for years to come.”
Work is set to begin by the end of the month on the third and final phase of a 25 kilometre twinning project on Highway 7 between Saskatoon and Delisle with completion scheduled for early fall. The Government of Canada is funding half of the eligible costs of the project with the balance of the project being funded by the Government of Saskatchewan.
While design work continues on passing lanes west of Kindersley to the Alberta border, construction on two new sets of passing lanes is underway on Highway 7 west of Rosetown. This is in addition to the four sets of passing lanes that were complete in 2015 from Rosetown east to Delisle.
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.
