] . It is the longest Saskatchewan Highway, at 809 km (503 mi). However, only about 18 km near Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, 11 km near Chamberlain, Saskatchewan, and 21 km near Prince Albert, Saskatchewan are divided highway. Highway 2 is a major north-south route, connecting Montana Highway 24 at Port of West Poplar River, Montana, at the Canadian-American border, with the town of La Ronge, Saskatchewan in the north. It passes through the major cities of Moose Jaw in the south and Prince Albert in the north. Highway 2 overlaps Highway 11 between the towns of Chamberlain and Findlater. Interestingly, this 11-km section of road is a wrong-way concurrency. The highway ends at La Ronge, where it becomes Highway 102.The stretch of Highway 2 from Moose Jaw to Prince Albert was designated in 2005 as Veterans Memorial Highway. The renaming coincided with Veterans Week 2005. [Citation

Naming

Veterans Memorial Highway is the official name of Highway 2 between Moose Jaw and Prince Albert. As a tribute to Saskatchewan veterans, Premier Lorne Calvert, Highways and Transportation Minister Eldon Lautermilch and Past Provincial President of the Royal Canadian Legion, Saskatchewan Command, John Henderson together unveiled the new highway sign on November 10, 2005. The ceremony was held during veteran's week, Nov. 5th-11th, and also commemorates The Year of the Veteran, 2005. [Citation
