List of Saskatchewan provincial highways

This is a list of Saskatchewan's highways:

Only Highways 1, 2, 6, 7, 11, 12, and 16 contain sections of divided highway. Speed limits range from 90 km/h (55 mph) to 110 km/h (70 mph). Saskatchewan is the only province bordering the United States with no direct connection to the Interstate Highway system.

1 - 99

These are primary highways maintained by the provincial government. Almost all of these highways are paved for most of their length. Highways 1, 11 and 16 are the most important highways and are divided highways for much of their lengths, with some sections at expressway or freeway standards.

100 - 199

Major northern highways, usually corresponding to a "parent" 1-99 highway.

200 - 299

These are usually highways connecting from a "parent" 1-99 highway to a recreational area.

300 - 399

These are usually highways connecting from a "parent" 1-99 highway to minor communities near the "parent" route.

600 - 699

600s highways are minor highways that run north and south; generally, the last two digits increase from east to west. Many of these highways are gravel for some of their length.

700 - 799

700s highways are minor highways that run east and west; generally, the last two digits increase from south to north. Many of these highways are gravel for some of their length.

900 - 999

These are roads that generally provide access to isolated, northern communities. Most (if not all) of these highways are unpaved for their entire length.
