Saskatchewan Highway 955 is worth the white-knuckle drive
Located in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan, Saskatchewan Highway 955 is an adventure drive, not for the faint of lungs, heart, or legs.
How long is the Saskatchewan Highway 955?
Built in 1979, the road is almost entirely unpaved (only the first miles are paved). It’s 270 km (167 miles) long running south-north from Highway 155 on La Loche (on the eastern shore of Lac La Loche) to Cluff Lake Mine, closed since the early 2000s. The highway includes the challenging Semchuk Trail - a winter road created to take supplies to Uranium City and now maintained (sort of) up to Carswell Lake.
How to drive the Saskatchewan Highway 955?
Due the remoteness of the area, take special care to ensure that your vehicle is ready for the trip. The road is very rough and is recommended to carry multiple spares for each vehicle. The rough gravel trail includes sharp protruding rocks, bone-jarring "rough spots" and patches of soft sand. Drivers using the route need to carry extra fuel and other supplies, including spare tires owing to the sharp gravel used on the road.
