MAPLE CREEK, Sask. — The province of Saskatchewan has officially opened a newly-twinned 24-km stretch of Hwy. 1 West near Maple Creek.
Highways and Transportation Minister, Mark Wartman, was on-hand for a ribbon cutting ceremony, marking the completion of twinning on the Trans-Canada between the Alberta border and the Hwy. 21 junction leading to Maple Creek.
“This latest twinning achievement will enhance safety for travellers on a stretch of highway that had limited passing opportunities and increasing truck traffic,” says Wartman. “We are closing the gap on the remaining Highway 1 west twinning at an accelerated pace. The final 38 km of untwinned highway will be fully twinned by 2004.”
