MINISTER TOUTS IMPROVEMENTS TO HWY. 15

GOODEVE, Sask — A tender has been awarded for resurfacing 11.5 km of Hwy. 15 near Goodeve, Sask., this construction season.

“Work on this $1.3 million resurfacing project is anticipated to begin in August of 2001 and should be completed by October,” says Saskatchewan Highways and Transportation Minister Pat Atkinson. “Completion of this job will require an estimated 39 full-time workers.”

Beginning east of Fenwood, the project will run to the east of Goodeve and has been awarded to Langenburg Redi-Mix Ltd.

“As with many highways across the province, Hwy. 15 is experiencing a sharp increase in truck traffic, which causes road deterioration,” says Atkinson. “Maintaining Hwy. 15 in good driving condition is important for the economy in this region.”

As well, a tender has been awarded for resurfacing 9.3 km of Hwy. 21, to the north of Maple Creek. Anderson Rental and Paving Ltd. of Saskatoon, was awarded this project.
