Provincial highways in Saskatchewan
CanAm Highway passes through these states in the United States: Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, South Dakota, North Dakota, as well as the province of Saskatchewan, Canada. The international Can-Am Highway travels along U.S. Route 85 and Interstate 25, connecting Mexico to Canada through the United States. The CanAm highway in Canada comprises Saskatchewan Highways SK 35, SK 39, SK 6, SK 3, and SK 2. The route continues south in Mexico as Mexican Federal Highway 45, and north as SK 102 but are not labeled the CanAm highway.
The CanAm highway was a concept begun in the 1920s.
The CanAm matters so little to Saskatchewan highway planners that they've turned the most southern part of it within the province -- the Highway 35 link from Weyburn to the little U.S. border crossing at Oungre -- to gravel.
— The Star Phoenix editorial
The CanAm Highway follows U.S. Route 85 from El Paso, Texas, for 1,478 miles (2,379 km) to the border between the United States and Canada. It continues north on Saskatchewan Highway 35 (SK 35) to Weyburn where it switches to SK 39. Then it runs north to Corinne where it continues on SK 6 until Melfort. There it changes highways again, this time to follow SK 3. That carries the CanAm Highway to Prince Albert where it continues on SK 2. The northern end is at La Ronge. The portion of the highway within Canada is 497.3 miles (800.3 km); the total length is 1,975.3 miles (3,178.9 km).
