Highway 302 west of Prince Albert is once again open to traffic as repairs wrap up on a section of road where a culvert washed out this spring.
“We understand the difficulties faced by area residents during the past few months and we thank you for your patience throughout the repairs,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Nancy Heppner said. “Work was hindered by issues related to weather, equipment failures and unusual site challenges.”
“We would like to thank the Rural Municipality of Prince Albert for their co-operation in establishing the detour that was used during repairs.”
The repairs consisted of the installation of a 100 metre-long steel culvert and resurfacing of the road. The project cost approximately $1.3 million, including maintenance of the detour route.
Seal coating wrapped up yesterday and signs are in place warning drivers of loose gravel.
The government has invested a record $4.3 billion in transportation infrastructure since 2008.
