LIBERTY, Sask. – Hwy. 2 near Liberty will be receiving attention soon as resurfacing begins on an 8.2-kilometre stretch.
“It’s important to keep our rural highways in good condition. By repairing several sections, we will be able to effectively fix those highways most in need,” says Highways and Transportation Minister, Pat Atkinson.
The work will take place on Hwy. 2 between Liberty and the junction with Hwy. 15. The $750,000 project will require the help of 15 workers.
Work also has begun on a 9.2-km stretch of Hwy. 35 between Lipton and the junction of Hwy. 35 and Hwy. 16. About $750,000 will be sunk into the stretch of road, which is in desperate need of repairs.
As well, work is under way to resurface a seven-km stretch of Hwy. 22 just east of Cupar.
The $600,000 road improvement project should wrap up in mid-September and will take 31 full-time workers to complete. The area being affected is Hwy. 22 from the junction with Grid 640, west.
“Highway 22 east of Cupar has experienced significantly higher volumes of traffic in the last couple of years,” says Highways and Transportation Minister Pat Atkinson. “It’s necessary to keep this important highway in good driving condition.” n
