The Saskatoon Freeway (formerly Perimeter Highway) is a provincial highway system that will partially encircle the City of Saskatoon with portions in Corman Park. As a provincial highway, the Ministry of Highways & Infrastructure (MHI) will be leading the planning and construction of the highway, however the R.M. is involved as a stakeholder.
The Saskatoon Freeway General Location Study was to review route options in the southern portion of Corman Park. The study had three different segments for review the west (Highway No. 7 to No. 14), southwest (Highway No, 7 across the river to Highway No. 11) and southeast (Highway No. 11 to south of Highway No. 5) portions.
MHI led the project with their consultant Associated Engineering. It was determined that a southwest connection was not needed and that portion of the project was removed. In May 2017, MHI released preferred options for the west and southeast portions. Please visit the MHI project website for more information.
MHI is now undertaking functional planning, or more detailed design of the Saskatoon Freeway, starting in 2019. Functional planning study will determine how the Saskatoon Freeway will look and operate in the future including where the centre line of the road will be and the type of interchanges, service roads and accesses on and off the freeway.
