UNITY, Sask. — A 16-kilometre stretch of Hwy. 21 north of here will receive attention, as the Saskatchewan government continues to pump record funds into roads.
The project will include subgrade construction, surfacing and seal coat phases, which will all work to protect the road’s surface.
Highways and Transportation Minister Pat Atkinson, says the area has seen an increase in truck traffic, and that has resulted in highway deterioration.
“Work for this $3.1 million improvement project has recently begun and should be completed by late August,” says Atkinson. “Completion of this job will require an estimated 31 full-time workers.”
