Simplified black and white signage has been posted in dozens of work zones across Saskatchewan throughout this construction season, offering a plain reminder to drivers that they must slow down or face tripled fines.
"Whether or not you see workers and equipment, and no matter the time of day, you must slow to 60 km/hr if the sign is posted - it's black and white," Highways and Infrastructure Minister Don McMorris said. "We're getting into fall now, but there is still plenty of work underway and it's important that drivers watch for construction and obey the rules."
Additional travel information about emergency road closures, the status of ferries and barges and other road activities can also be found on the Highway Hotline at www.highways.gov.sk.ca/road-conditions. The government has invested a record $3.7 billion in transportation infrastructure since 2008.
