KAMSACK, Sask. — Funds from the Prairie Grain Movement agreement are being used to surface a 17.7 kilometre stretch of Hwy. 8 through Saskatchewan.
The road will be surfaced beginning at the junction of Hwy. 357 and carrying right through to the town of Kamsack. A seal coat will be applied, and other improvements are also in the works.
"Highway 8 is a busy route that requires major repair work," says Highways and Transportation Minister Pat Atkinson. "With the resurfacing work on a 17.7 km section and a seal coat used on a 21.6 km section, drivers will notice a much smoother ride on this highway."
The $2.4 million project will include 49 full-time workers and should wrap up in late August.
