WEYBURN, Sask. — As part of an ambitious road improvement agenda by the Saskatchewan government, a 11.3 kilometre stretch of Hwy. 13 is being resurfaced.
Work is to begin shortly on the project, just west of Weyburn, and will wrap up in late August.
The $1.7 million project has been awarded to G.W. Construction of Buchanan, Sask.
“Highway 13 has recently seen an increase in truck traffic in the Weyburn area that is damaging the road,” says Highways and Transportation Minister, Pat Atkinson. “By resurfacing this highway, we are creating a much smoother surface for travellers.”
