A $7.1 million surfacing project on Highway 4 near Cadillac and an $8.3 million paving project on Highway 42 near Eyebrow have now been completed. This is on top of about $15 million worth of highway and bridge work, which is currently underway in the southwest part of the province.
“Our government continues to invest in highway and infrastructure projects that improve safety for people travelling in southwestern Saskatchewan, with this in mind, I urge travellers to follow the signage, slow down and respect the work zones,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister David Marit said. “With summer weather on its way and people beginning to head out to the lake, we are pleased to announce the trip along Highway 42 to Lake Diefenbaker will be much smoother.”
Some of the other highway and infrastructure projects in the southwest this week include:
•Paving on Highway 4 north of Swift Current to Stewart Valley;
•Bridge work on Highway 4 over the South Saskatchewan River at Saskatchewan Landing;
•Surfacing near Maple Creek on Highway 21 between the junctions of Highways 221 and 271; and
•Surfacing on Highway 32 northwest of Cabri to the Shackleton Access.
