BELLE PLAINE, Sask. — Another 21 kilometres of Hwy. 1 in Saskatchewan will receive attention, as the provincial government pumps $3.1 million into its portion of the Trans-Canada Highway.

The westbound lanes of the highway will be resurfaced this summer, just west of the junction between Hwy. 1 and Grid 642 at Belle Plaine. Two off-ramps in the area will also be resurfaced.

“As part of our national highway system, Hwy. 1 is expected to carry a high volume of traffic, including heavy trucks,” says Minister of Highways and Transportation, Pat Atkinson. “It is a priority to invest our budget dollars in the preservation and maintenance of our provincial highways.

The project should be wrapped up by the end of July, and a total of 26 full-time workers have been employed to see it through to completion.
