Weekly Construction Update
Commuters, shippers and other area traffic can expect a smoother ride as an $8.2 million repaving of Highway 46 between Regina and Balgonie wrapped up this week.
“The repaved highway will provide a high-quality driving surface for the more than 8,500 motorists who use this stretch of highway every day,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Nancy Heppner said. “This is an example of the government continuing to invest in transportation infrastructure that supports some of our province’s fastest-growing communities.”
The project also included the resurfacing of Highway 364 from just outside of Balgonie to the rail tracks in the town.
New projects underway in the province this week include $8.6 million in paving on Highway 11 south of Macdowall and a $250,000 grading project on Highway 15 west of the junction with Highway 2.
