Travel safely to Grey Cup festivities!

Headlined SASKATCHEWAN HIGHWAYS TO EXPERIENCE THE RIDER NATION RUSH TO REGINA, the Government of Saskatchewan issued a press release urging motorists to drive carefully on their trek to Regina for the 101st Grey Cup game and festivities.

With the Roughriders and Tiger-Cats set to clash in the Grey Cup final and the lion’s share of fans stampeding toward Regina on Saskatchewan highways, motorists are reminded to avoid rushing and pass safely during their drive.

“The Riders’ home Grey Cup appearance is a huge cause for celebration, and drivers from within the province and across Canada will flood into Regina for the festivities,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Don McMorris said. “However, winter conditions have arrived, so I want to remind all motorists to check the Highway Hotline and drive cautiously when they head out so it can be a good, safe week for everyone.”

For the Highway Hotline’s latest available Saskatchewan road conditions, visit hotline.gov.sk.ca or for recorded reports, phone 306-787-7623 in the Regina area, 306-933-8333 in the Saskatoon area or 1-888-335-7623 toll-free across Canada.

The Highway Hotline continues to use social media. For road closures and travel not recommended alerts on Twitter, follow @SKGovHwyHotline. General tips and other helpful information are available on Facebook at www.facebook.com/SaskatchewanHighwayHotline.

Whether you are heading to Regina or just to the neighbouring town to watch the game with friends and family, unity stories reminds you to take care out there!  And Go, Riders, go!
