Repairs Underway On Sections of Trans-Canada near Gull Lake

Released on August 21, 2014

Weekly Construction Update

Westbound motorists travelling on Highway 1 in southwestern Saskatchewan should be on the lookout for work crews as $5.7 million in repaving is underway.

“As part of the National Highway System, Highway 1 is vital to Saskatchewan’s economy and tourism and that’s why we’re continuing to make investments such as this project near Gull Lake,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Nancy Heppner said.  “This stretch of highway sees close to 5,000 vehicles per day, so drivers should be prepared for potential delays.  We appreciate your patience as we undertake this important work.”

The project, which also includes an intersection improvement on Highway 37 south of Gull Lake, is expected to be complete this fall, subject to weather.  Traffic may be reduced to one lane though the work area.  Motorists must always slow to 60 km/hr when passing through the work zone.

Other new work underway in the province this week includes a pair of $1.3 million bridge replacements on Highway 23 west of Arborfield and Highway 26 near Turtleford.  In both cases, existing timber bridges are being replaced with precast concrete bridges.

The weekly construction update provides Saskatchewan residents with the latest details on current projects to help plan safe and efficient travel throughout the summer and fall.  To learn more about Saskatchewan work zones, head to www.highways.gov.sk.ca/workzone/
