Construction is revving up on Saskatchewan highways and the provincial government is asking people to help ensure work zones are set up correctly.

If a driver comes across any missing or improper signs, they can report it to the Saskatchewan Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure by calling 306-244-5535.

When entering a work zone, motorists should see an orange sign with the words “workers present.” This will be followed by a black and white speed sign advising motorists to slow to 60 kilometres per hour.

Drivers will know they can resume the posted maximum speed limit after seeing a construction zone sign with the words “end of work area.”

“Please remember there is no reason to speed through a work zone,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister David Marit said.

The ministry said there may be hazards in construction zones, such as a sharp pavement drop, which warrant a 60 km/h speed limit even though workers are not present.

Drivers can check the Highway Hotline for traffic delays and closures throughout the province.
