50 kilometres of new pavement is expected on Highway 11 between Regina and Saskatoon.
According to a government release, it’s a $12.5 million investment
In addition to being the primary route between two major cities with a combined population exceeding 500,000, Highway 11 also links to Highways 1, 16 and 6 which lead Manitoba, Alberta and the US.
This route currently sees more than 7,700 vehicles a day.
Work is already underway, with crews paving southbound lanes north of Girvin and Bladworth, and 11 kilometres of northbound lanes near Dundurn.
These projects are expected to finish up in July.
Additional plans include paving 20 km of northbound lanes on Highway 11 near Kenaston, which is expected to start in early June and finish in August this year.
