Building more highways

Roads and highways keep Saskatchewan residents connected and the economy growing, which is why the 2024-25 Budget makes road maintenance and safety a priority.

Budget highlights include:

  • $417 million for highway infrastructure in Saskatchewan. This includes:
    • $404.0 million for capital projects; and
    • $13.3 million in capital grants to support municipalities and industry partners making strategic transporation investments.
  • $73.5 million to build, operate and maintain the transportation system in northern Saskatchewan.
  • $59.3 million to repair or rebuild 17 bridges and replace more than 100 culverts.
  • Through the Safety Improvement Program, the province will invest $17.6 million toward intersections, guardrails and lighting across Saskatchewan.
    • This follows last year’s completion of a five-year, $100-million investment in road safety.
  • Construction continues on several major highway improvement projects, including:
    • Twinning projects near Rowatt and Corinne on Highways 6 and 39 between Regina and Weyburn;
    • Corridor improvements on Highway 5 east of Saskatoon; and
    • Completion of the replacement of two Highway 6 bridges over Regina’s Ring Road.
  • Funding in 2024-25 will improve more than 1,100 km of provincial highways, including:
    • 260 km of repaving;
    • 765 km of light and medium pavement preservation;
    • 58 km of Thin Membrane Surface improvements; and
    • 25 km of gravel rehabilitation.
  • Since 2008, the Government of Saskatchewan has invested more than $13 billion in transportation infrastructure, improving more than 20,700 kilometres of highways.
