If touring the set of the iconic Corner Gas TV show in Rouleau, Saskatchewan was on your bucket list, you are about to miss out.
On Friday, the Gas Station and The Ruby will be torn down.
They were the cornerstones of the fictional town of Dog River featured in the TV series, Corner Gas.
Located at the junction of Highway 39, Weckman Drive and 1st Avenue, about 65 km southwest of Regina, the set has become a popular tourist destination.
However, the town of Rouleau will soon finalize plans on a Dog River Walking Tour in Summer 2017.
And there is word discussions continue with Saskatchewan’s Western Development Museum about a possible donation of iconic pieces from the Corner Gas set.
According to producers of the show, time and the elements have taken their toll.
Built on a bog, the structures have been sinking over the years and the foundation is beyond repair.
According to a media release, Corner Gas was the number-1 Canadian sitcom in Canada for six seasons, maintaining an average audience of 1.4 million viewers over its 107-episode run.
The series finale made television history when a record-breaking 3.02 million viewers tuned into on April 13, 2009.
