Paving underway on Saskatchewan’s Highway 11
By Andrew Macklin
June 1, 2016 – A $12.5 million investment will result in 50 kilometres of new pavement on Highway 11 between Regina and Saskatoon. This work will provide a smoother ride for traffic heading to Saskatchewan Roughriders games later this summer.
In addition to being the primary route between two major cities with a combined population exceeding 500,000, Highway 11 also links to Highways 1, 16 and 6, which lead to Manitoba, Alberta and the U.S. As Saskatchewan’s population and economy have grown, so has traffic on this important route, which currently sees more than 7,700 vehicles a day.
Work is already underway, with crews busy paving southbound lanes north of Girvin and Bladworth, and 11 kilometres of northbound lanes near Dundurn. These projects are expected to finish up in July.
Additional plans include paving 20 kilometres of northbound lanes on Highway 11 near Kenaston, which is expected to start in early June and finish in August this year.
