As the construction season continues to move forward, motorists are advised to watch for highway crews as work continues to improve Saskatchewan's roads.

"Please be cautious and alert when approaching any road construction or highway activity ahead," Highways and Infrastructure Minister Jim Reiter said. "Remember to also obey all flag persons and slow to 60 km/hr when passing highway workers and equipment in the Orange Zone."

New anticipated construction activity highlighted for this update period includes bridge work on Highway 1 near Rush Lake, seal coating on Highway 12 near Martensville, potential culvert replacements on Highway 361 east of Lampman, along with surfacing on Highway 363 near Courval. More details about the work outlined above, the closure of Highway 39 between Weyburn and Estevan related to ongoing construction work, along with other potential impacts to motorists and information about other projects in various stages throughout the province can be found in the attached backgrounder.
