The twinning project on Highway 16 east of Saskatoon is almost complete.
The 19.5 kilometres of newly twinned road extends west of the Bradwell access road, shifts Highway 16 north of Clavet and a new railway crossing.
The section of Yellowhead Trans-Canada Highway 16 from east of Saskatoon to near the Bradwell access supports about 94 hundred vehicles travelling on it daily including about 900 trucks moving goods and accessing nearby canola facilities.
Construction began in 2014 and had originally been targeted to be completed in the fall of 2017. Pending weather, which has been largely favourable so far, the newly twinned lanes are targeted to open to traffic as early as late October following completion of railway signals. The twinning cost an estimated 52.4 million dollars.
