Grade Raises Wrapping up on Highway 123

Released on October 23, 2014

Weekly Construction Update

A $2.5 million project to raise the grade on three flood-prone stretches of Highway 123 is nearing completion.

“Highway 123 runs along the Saskatchewan River delta from Highway 55 to Cumberland House,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Nancy Heppner said.  “These upgrades will help to ensure the highway is safer and more reliable when the water table is high.  Crews had to overcome extremely wet conditions to complete this work.”

A total of eight kilometres of the highway were improved.

In addition, traffic is flowing once again on Highway 22 near Neudorf.  The highway had been closed since torrential rains caused a washout in late June/early July.  The $1.7 million project involved the installation of a large culvert.

New projects underway in the province this week include culvert installations on highways 2, 18, 35 and 358 as well as some paving on Highway 22 near the Manitoba border.

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/
