I don’t know what the practice is in Sask, though.
"Highway 39" would be most common, occasionally just "39". e.g. "How do you go to Minot from Regina?" "I take 33 then 47, then 39 from Estevan which turns into US 52." You will hear "the Ring Road" for our freeway occasionally, but never "the Idylwyld" in Saskatoon (at least, I've never heard it).

In Manitoba, people use 59 all the time, for hwy 59. Locally some people do use 7 for hwy 7 from where a lot of my family lives.

But it's not like in the states where it's widespread, take the 5 or take the 10.

I think 4 lanes are definitely out of the question at this point.

For those of you that wonder what I meant by 2+1, just think alternating passing lanes. (K technically a 2+1 configuration is much fancier than this: it’s got median barriers and possibly even interchanges, on top of alternating passing lanes. Anyway, I should have just said alternating passing lanes right from the start...)

I assume it will be periodic passing lanes like they did on number 10 between Balgonie and Fort Qu'appelle and not a constant 2+1 arrangement. Or should I say The 10.

Okay, still better than nothing. That’s just like Yellowhead then.
