The Regina Police Service is warning drivers about a march expected to delay traffic on two of Regina's busiest streets Monday afternoon.
Starting at noon, the Walkers of Mother Earth will begin their march from the Cree Land Mini-Mart on 5th Avenue. Heading south, the group will turn east on Victoria Avenue to finish the march in front of City Hall.
Police will be directing traffic, but they ask drivings to take an alternate route.
Highway 2 from Moose Jaw to Chamberlain is set to close once again this morning.
A portion of the highway from Tuxford to the intersection with Chamberlain remained closed all day on Friday as clean up continued after a truck flipped, spilling oil near Buffalo Pound Lake, but was reopened in the evening for traffic.
That stretch of highway 2 will be closed again Saturday as of 8 a.m. as crews continue to clean up the spil.
Saskatchewan highway crews are caught in abalancing act at this time of year essentially doing both spring and winter activities.
Kirsten Leatherdale with the Highway Hotline says crews are busy steaming culverts and clearing drainage areas for spring. But because the winter weather has decided to stick around, they also have to attend to winter maintenance should conditions call for it.
Since crews aren’t out in full force as they might have been in January or February, that means road updates don’t always happen.
Freezing rain and snow is creating hazardous icy conditions on highways across southern Saskatchewan Friday morning.
Highway 11 between Regina and Lumsden was closed for several hours after icy roads caused a semi to jack-knife.
RCMP said the conditions were so bad, not even the tow trucks can get in to help. At least one police cruiser, and an ambulance slid off the road while responding to the scene.

The Transportation Safety Board’s Peter Hildebrand said excess water in the fuel delivery system froze during the flight and affected the fuel system.
“With the amount of water and ice blocking the line to the engine, the engine would not have been able to continue to operate,” he said.
A semi truck hit the ditch on the trans-Canada highway near Belle Plain Saturday afternoon, spilling its paper cargo and slowing traffic in the eastbound lanes.
Crews were on scene for hours trying to clean up the mess.
The warm weather is a welcome change for many in Regina, but it’s also bringing back something that’s not-so-welcome - ruts.
And although the city is beginning to switch its focus to spring activities like clearing catch basins, it hasn’t totally forgot about the remaining snow and ice.
“We do have crews at all areas of the city, so they’re out there plowing the residential streets in an effort to reduce the rutting as much as possible as well as even expose the pavement,” said Chris Warren, Manager of Winter Maintenance.
