ONION LAKE, Sask. — The Saskatchewan and Alberta governments are teaming up to improve a busy highway shared by the two provinces.

A 12.6 kilometre stretch of Hwy. 17 will receive attention this summer, with 55 full-time workers participating in the $3.7 million upgrade.

The first phase of the project was carried out last year, with 10.7 kms of the highway being graded and primed for resurfacing. The rest of the upgrades will be completed by late July.

Anderson Rental and Paving, of Saskatoon, got the nod to make the improvements.
