Canada : Another Set Of Passing Lanes Ready To Open.

Passing lanes on Highway 2, north of Moose Jaw, are set to open next week. This is in addition to passing lanes that opened earlier this week on Highway 7 near Rosetown.

Highway 2 north of Moose Jaw is a busy highway and the new passing lanes will improve traffic flow and safety, Highways and Infrastructure Minister Lori Carr said. Please be patient when driving, and use the new lanes to pass slower traffic safely.

Meanwhile, construction continues on additional passing lanes on Highway 7 west of Rosetown. A second set of lanes is expected to open by the end of July. Construction on Highways 9 and 10 passing lanes is scheduled to get underway later this season, while planning and design work continues on Highway 5 east of Saskatoon and Highway 39 northwest and southeast of Weyburn.

Passing lanes can reduce collisions by 25 per cent at 80 per cent less cost than that of a fully twinned highway. When passing through a construction work zone, it is the law to slow to 60 km/hr. Drivers need to be attentive and obey signs in the work zone to ensure the safety of workers and other travellers.
