Work to start on highway safety project near Davidson

An intersection safety improvement is set to begin at the south end of Davidson on Highway 11.

Highways and Infrastructure Minister Greg Ottenbreit says the improvements in Davidson will reduce the number of collisions at the busy intersection, and is a prime example of the province’s commitment to safety.

Crews will be building two acceleration lanes totaling a distance of 1.52 kilometres at the junction of Railway Street, just south of Davidson.

The project is set to cost $916,000 with work expected to begin in August and completed in September.

Additional intersection improvements are planned around the province including Highway 3 east of Prince Albert, Kalium Access on Highway 1 between Regina and Moose Jaw and Highway 342 south of Plato.  In addition to the enhanced intersection safety investments, another $7 million will be spent through SIP to reduce the frequency and severity of collisions on Highway 155 in Buffalo Narrows, Highway 14 east of Biggar and Highway 20 at Lumsden.
