REGINA, Sask. — The roadwork season is under way in earnest in Saskatchewan, with many road crews taking it to the asphalt.
An 8.6km stretch of Hwy. 21 south of Unity is already being resurfaced — a stretch of highway identified as needing upgrades during this year’s winter tender scheduling.
Meanwhile, resurfacing has also begun on 12km of Hwy. 7 near Tessier and Zealandia, as well as Hwy. 13 near Lafleche, Hwy. 1 near Grenfell, and Hwy. 35 south of Elfros.
Highways and Transportation Minister, Mark Wartman, says this will prove to be a busy summer for Saskatchewan road improvement and paving companies.
“Saskatchewan Highways and Transportation is working hard to fix roads across the province to improve driver safety,” says Wartman. He notes an increase in truck traffic throughout the province has necessitated more work than ever before.
