Saskatchewan Highway 6 and Highway 39 Corridor Improvements – Climate Change Risk and Vulnerability Assessment

Saskatchewan Highway 6 and Highway 39 Corridor Improvements – Climate Change Risk and Vulnerability Assessment

The Saskatchewan Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure (the Ministry) retained Stantec to provide Owner’s
Engineering Services related to corridor improvements on Highway 6 and Highway 39. As part of these services, the
Ministry has engaged Stantec to lead a climate change risk and vulnerability assessment of the portions of Highway 6
and Highway 39 that are proposed to undergo corridor improvements in the coming years. This risk and vulnerability
assessment include the current and proposed infrastructure assets and was completed using Engineers Canada’s
Public Infrastructure Engineering Vulnerability Committee’s (PIEVC) vulnerability assessment Protocol (the Protocol).
This assessment will help the Ministry identify potential vulnerabilities these highway sections may have to various
weather events, including weather events with the frequency and severity that is projected in the changing climate over
the next several decades. Results from this assessment will provide the Ministry with necessary data and
recommendations for future adaptation strategies to mitigate the identified risks.
