“Agriculture is the backbone of the provincial economy and we want to ensure that families hard at work this harvest season get home safely,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister David Marit said. “Please remain patient and watch for slow-moving or oversized farm equipment to avoid collisions.”
Farmers can avoid delays by checking for highway construction on the Highway Hotline.
