Highway 49 Truck Route
Res #: 52-16A
Responses Received: No
WHEREAS Highway 49’s 9 month primary weight classification ends at Pelly, Saskatchewan or 23 kilometers short of Junction 83; and
WHEREAS lack of such primary weight access to Junction 83 forces Saskatchewan heavy haulers to detour an extra hour south through Saskatchewan’s tourism destination, Duck Mountain Provincial Park;
BE IT RESOLVED that SARM lobby the Provincial Government to re-class and upgrade Highway 49 from Highway 9 to Junction 83 as a primary weight truck route.
