Provincial highways in Saskatchewan

Hwy 13 Hwy 15

Highway 14 is a highway in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. It runs from the intersection of Idylwyld Drive and 22nd Street in downtown Saskatoon, westward to the Alberta border where it becomes Highway 13. It is approximately 261 km (162 mi.) long.

Prior to 1976, Highway 14 ran the width of the province, continuing east from Saskatoon to the Manitoba border where it tranistioned to PTH 4. In 1976, the portion of Highway 14 east of Saskatoon was made part of the Yellowhead Highway along with the section of Highway 5 running west of Saskatoon. These two sections were re-designated as Highway 16 so that the Yellowhead Highway would carry one number through the four Western provinces (Manitoba would follow suit the next year, redesignating PTH 4 to PTH 16).

Though Highway 14 is one of the three major highways leading from Saskatoon to Alberta, it is less used than Highway 7 or Highway 16 as the other highways provide direct access to Calgary and Edmonton respectively.

Major communities that Highway 14 passes through are Saskatoon (km 0 - km 6), Asquith (km 39), Biggar (km 97), Wilkie (km 163), Unity (km 195), and Macklin (km 254).

Highway 14 intersects with Highways 11 (km 0), 7 (km 6), 684 (km 7), 672 (concurrent km 21 - 29), 673 (km 37), 376 (km 42), 655 (concurrent km 62 - 66), 51 and 4 (both at km 97), 656 (concurrent km 117 - 131), 658 (concurrent km 151 - 163), 29 (km 163), 374 (km 171), 21 (km 195), 675 (concurrent km 212 - 220), 676 (km 232), 17 (concurrent km 254 - 256), and 31 (km 254).
