Crews near end of $120M upgrade to Saskatchewan’s Highway 7

Crews near end of $120M upgrade to Saskatchewan’s Highway 7

KINDERSLEY, SASK. — Crews are nearing the finish line on a multi-year series of highway safety improvements on Highway 7 in Saskatchewan.

The latest upgrades include passing lanes between Kindersley and the Saskatchewan-Alberta border. Since 2014, the province has spent about $120 million on major safety improvements on Highway 7 between Saskatoon and the interprovincial boundary.

“The Ministry of Highways has a long-term strategy that will improve safety, increase capacity and support economic growth,” said Jeremy Cockrill, highways minister, in a statement. “Our government is following through on its commitments through strategic investments in key corridors such as Highway 7.”

This year, the province is investing $18 million to build six passing lanes between Kindersley and the border. The project also includes intersection improvements at Marengo and Alsask. Construction runs from about 27 kilometres west of Kindersley to nearly two kilometres east of Alberta. Officials say the upgrades will make the route significantly safer.

“Safety is our business and it is great to see the improvements on Highway 7 including passing lanes and turning lanes in our area,” said Janelle Layton, owner of Jorann Safety. “These safety improvements have been well received by our local community and the professional drivers alike.”

In addition to 22 passing lanes from Delisle to the border, 31 kilometres of twinning was completed southwest of Saskatoon to Delisle in 2019.
