Watch for farm equipment on highways during harvest

With harvest underway, please be aware of slower moving farm machinery on provincial highways.

“Agriculture is the foundation of Saskatchewan's economy, so we understand the importance of getting the crop off and safely into the bin,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Greg Ottenbreit said. “We all need to do our part to keep highways safe for everyone, so please be aware of slower moving equipment.”

Plan ahead and be patient when entering a highway construction work zone, such as along Highway 39 in the Weyburn region. There may be cases when workers are not present that require you to slow down.

A sharp pavement drop-off or loose stones are examples of hazards that warrant a slower posted speed. If you have concerns about highway work zone signing problems, please call 306-244-5535.
