In an effort to reduce collisions and to make travel more efficient, Saskatchewan announced Highway 10 east passing lanes will be moving forward between Fort Qu’Appelle and Melville.
The province stated the passing lanes project is expected to have its design completed early next year and tendered in spring 2025 which will lead to on-road construction, pending weather and contractor capacity.It will be two kilometres long and provide additional opportunities for drivers to pass safely, instead of twinning a highway.Saskatchewan Highways Minister Lori Carr said this initiative is part of the passing lanes strategy.

“Passing lane projects are a cost-effective investment to make our highways safer and more efficient,” Carr said in a release.“They protect motorists and strengthen our province’s export-based economy to support our quality of life. This next set of Highway 10 passing lanes are part of an ongoing strategy that will guide us as we move these types of projects from the drawing board to reality to keep building and protecting our great province.” Story continues below advertisement
