LASHBURN, Sask. – The twinning of Hwy. 16 in Lashburn, Sask. has been started, thanks to the Canada/Saskatchewan Strategic Highway Infrastructure Program (SHIP).

The $5.5 million project is jointly funded by the province and the feds, and will see twinning completed by Sept. 28.

Federal Transport Minister, David Collenette says “This project, which will enhance safety and improve the flow of traffic, is an excellent example of cooperation between the Government of Canada and the province of Saskatchewan.”

Hwy. 16 is a well-travelled northern east-west transportation corridor, also known as the Yellowhead Hwy.

The western section is used by about 3,000 vehicles per day.
