REGINA, Sask. — A 13 kilometre stretch of Hwy. 1 will be repaved this spring, several weeks ahead of schedule.

The westbound lanes of Hwy. 1will be repaved, from the Hwy. 6 junction, west to the Grand Coulee Access.

Work will begin this week, with the project being wrapped up by late June.

Highways and Transportation Minister Pat Atkinson says the roadwork is a sign to come in Saskatchewan, following a budget announcement that holds more spending on the province’s highways than ever before.

"Highway 1 experiences a high volume of traffic and it’s important to keep our national highway system in good driving condition," Atkinson said. "There are several improvement projects on Highway 1 this season, which will result in a smoother drive for travellers."
