Saskatchewan Government Reminding Residents to Report Improper Highway Work Zones

With construction season in full swing, highway work zones are setting up across Saskatchewan.

Highways and Infrastructure Minister David Marit says, “if you encounter a work zone that is not set up properly or has signs blown over, please contact the ministry at 306-244-5535.”

He adds, “please remember there is no reason to speed through a work zone.”

The Saskatchewan Government says the lay out for a highway work zone should be:

  1. Orange sign, with a black image of a worker and the words ‘Workers Present.’
  2. A black and white speed limit sign.
  3. The work zone.
  4. ‘End of Work Area’ sign.
  5. Speed limit sign.

However, there may be cases where there are hazards in the work zone, such as a sharp pavement drop or loose stones, therefore the speed limit will be set at 60 km/hr even when workers are not present.
