Highway 4 lanes outside North Battleford are open

The passing lanes on Highway 4 between North Battleford and Cochin are now open. Construction of the initial $10 million project has wrapped up, the four passing lanes are now open to traffic.

In a statement on Wednesday, Highways and Infrastructure Minister Lori Carr says driver safety is a top priority for the Saskatchewan government.

“Passing lanes can reduce collisions by 25 per cent and this investment in passing lanes on Highway 4 is another example of the priority our government places in roads and infrastructure.”

Traffic on highway 4  between the city and town range from 3,700 to 6,900 vehicles per day. A contractor will return to the lanes for additional paving, minor repairs and clean up next spring.

The release added, Saskatchewan has invested more than $8.4 billion in highways and infrastructure since 2008.
