Saskatoon Freeway Recommended Alignment

Long-term planning continues for the future Saskatoon Freeway. Work by the Ministry of Highways & Infrastructure (the Ministry) and their consultants, has been underway to finalize the general location study, which will identify the location of the freeway’s south eastern and western routes.

Previously, residents, landowners and other stakeholders were invited to a public information session on June 25, 2015 to collect input regarding possible routes. Feedback from the session was used to help develop options for the south eastern and western routes of the Saskatoon Freeway. A second session was held on November 19, 2015 to share options and receive feedback from stakeholders.

The Ministry  will now be holding an online information forum to share the recommended route and receive feedback. By visiting www.saskatchewan.ca/saskatoon-freeway from May 12-26, 2017, you can learn more about the proposed route for the Saskatoon Freeway and share your opinions regarding the route. The online forum will include complete information about the project, an explanation of the process and an opportunity to ask questions and receive answers.

The anticipated timeline to finalize the Saskatoon Freeway general location study is summer 2017. Subsequent planning for the future Saskatoon Freeway will take many more years as part of the Ministry’s long-range planning process. Once the planning process is complete, further time will be required to determine a construction strategy and timeline. While construction will not take place for many years and possibly decades, this initial phase will allow the necessary land to be protected, enabling municipalities, businesses and individuals to make informed decisions about land use as they plan for the future.

If you have any questions please visit the Ministry’s website or contact the R.M. Planning Development at 306-242-9303 or planning@rmcormanpark.ca.
