REGINA, Sask. — The Saskatchewan government has announced another 20 road projects that are about to get under way this spring, thanks to the Prairie Grain Roads Program.

The program, announced last week by all three levels of government, paves the way for over $220 million in improvements over the next five years.

“This is going to be a very progressive year as the funding is now in place to aggressively fix the roads across Saskatchewan,” says Highways and Transportation Minister Pat Atkinson. “The money from the Prairie Grain Roads Program, which includes $90 million of provincial funding over five years, will help pay for some of these highway improvement projects this year.”

With the new program officially launched, the province has released its spring tender schedule, which includes projects such as the further twinning of Hwy. 1 west, and the construction of a second bridge over the North Saskatchewan River.
