Spring breakup finally begins, delayed three weeks from usual

The 2023 spring road restrictions come into force in Saskatchewan on Friday, April 7, according to an April 5 press release from the Ministry of Highways. 

The announcement came roughly three weeks after the usual announcement of spring breakup road bans. That typically occurs within a few days of March 15, either before or after. This year, it’s 23 days after March 15.
