Highway 302 goes eastward from the South Saskatchewan River, passing near the communities of Birson, Fir Ridge, Cecil, and Cudworth Junction. It then enters the city of Prince Albert as 15th Street. Within Prince Albert, Highway 302 connects with Highway 2 and Highway 3. West of Prince Albert, it passes through the Prince Albert Settlement and near the community of Lily Plain before ending.

Highway 302 can be utilized to reach the Lacolle Falls and Saskatchewan River Forks provincial parks area.

History[edit]

Saskatchewan Highways and Transportation (SHT), now the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure undertook a landslide risk management system program to monitor risk sites, applying technological innovations to prevent any further erosion of the riverbank and plan responses to future landslide movement detected by monitors. Highway 302 near Prince Albert along the North Saskatchewan River near the Saskatchewan Penitentiary has experienced retrogressive landslides.[1]
