As of around 7:30 a.m. CST, westbound lanes of the Trans-Canada, the province's biggest and busiest highway, were still closed from Regina to Grenfell, a 125-kilometre stretch.
However, the eastbound lanes were open, even though there was some spring meltwater flowing over the pavement.
Around Indian Head in the morning, a semi-trailer was in the ditch.

It's a bad year for floods, with many communities struggling with swollen creeks and streams. Sandbagging is going on throughout the province.
Dozens of people on Cowessess First Nation have been forced from their homes.
Also closed, as of 7:30 a.m., due to water on the roads is:
- Highway 10 from Balgonie to Fort Qu'Appelle.
- Highway 350 about 9 kilometres north of the U.S. border.
- Highway 363 from Shamrock to Hodgeville.
The Highways Ministry says people heading out should check the Highways Hotline.
