REGINA, Sask. — More roadwork is in store for Saskatchewan’s highways, and the latest to receive attention is Hwy. 1 near the Alberta border.

A nine kilometre stretch of the highway’s westbound lanes will be twinned, as part of the province’s record spending spree on infrastructure.

"Twinning our National Highway System will increase safety for the driving public on these busy routes," said Highways and Transportation Minister, Pat Atkinson. "Tis twinning project, along with the planned 12.1 km of twinning on Highway 1 beginning just inside the Alberta border and continuing east, will bring a total of 21 km of new four lane highway at the Alberta border to be opened to traffic in the fall."

Carmacks Enterprises has been awarded the project, which is expected to be completed by the end of July
