A future freeway around the City of Saskatoon would improve traffic flow, alleviate congestion and improve safety.
Preliminary planning is underway to determine a route for a high-speed freeway around most of the City of Saskatoon. This general location study will be used for future planning.
A route has been selected for the North Perimeter Highway alignment. This route was recently validated by the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure, City of Saskatoon and R.M. of Corman Park.
The current location study underway is looking at the southeast portion of the planned perimeter freeway.
The study is overseen by a steering committee that includes representation from the Ministry, the City, Corman Park, the Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce and the regional economic development authority.
Stakeholder and public input is critical to the planning process. One-on-one meetings with key stakeholders and public open houses are being held to provide information about the project, present and gather feedback on the options for the future highway.
Following public engagement, the Ministry will report back to the community. The Government of Saskatchewan will continue to make contact and meet with landowners along the proposed route corridor to discuss options.
No timeline or project cost has been established for construction of a Saskatoon Perimeter Freeway.
