Construction begins this week on the Highway 7 twinning project from Saskatoon to Vanscoy, marking the third twinning project to begin in Saskatchewan this season.
In addition to Highway 7, twinning projects are underway on Highway 16 east of Saskatoon and Highway 39 from Bienfait to Estevan.
The Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure is alerting motorists of upcoming changes to the traffic patterns for the Highway 16 twinning project east of Saskatoon to Clavet.
Starting August 9, traffic will be diverted to the newly-completed westbound lanes from four kilometres east of Clavet to six km northwest.
Diverting traffic will allow crews to safely complete tie-ins for the eastbound lanes.
Access to Clavet will be maintained via Highway 316 and the current Highway 16. This project is scheduled to open to traffic in 2017.
Paving on the newly-twinned portion of Highway 7 from four km west of its junction with Highway 60 to 13 km west is expected to be completed this year.
Twinning work on Highways 39 and 18 from Bienfait to Estevan is expected to be completed in November 2017.
