Busy sum­mer work sched­ule on South­west roads

The Southwest Booster - - FRONT PAGE -

A trio of work projects on South­west roads will have an im­pact on sum­mer traf­fic.

A bridge re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion has be­gun on the span of the High­way #4 bridge over the South Saskatchew­an River. This $5 mil­lion project at Saskatchew­an Land­ing be­gan on May 28, and traf­fic will be re­stricted to one lane un­til the tar­get com­ple­tion date of Oc­to­ber 30.

Work is also un­der­way for a $5.2 mil­lion paving project on High­way #4 from just north of Swift Cur­rent to Ste­wart Val­ley. This project be­gan on June 17, and mo­torists can ex­pect de­lays as traf­fic is re­duced to a sin­gle lane un­til around July 1.

Crews are now well into a $2 mil­lion surfacing of just over eight kilo­me­tres of High­way #21 near Maple Creek. The work is oc­cur­ring south of the junc­tion of High­way #271. Mi­nor de­lays and dis­rup­tions will con­tinue un­til the project is com­pleted around July 4.

Work­ers also re­cently com­pleted a $7.1 mil­lion surfacing project on High­way #4 near Cadil­lac. A $4.5 mil­lion surfacing project on High­way #32 near Cabri has been wrapped up. The May project sur­faced High­way #32 from 1.8 kilo­me­tres north­west of Cabri and Hospi­tal Road to 3.9 kilo­me­tres north­west of the Grid 633 ac­cess to Shack­le­ton.

The prov­ince is re­mind­ing trav­ellers they need to obey signs, stay alert and slow to 60 kilo­me­tres per hour through the work zone. There may be cases when work­ers are not present that still re­quire you to slow down. A sharp pave­ment drop or loose stones dur­ing a seal coat are ex­am­ples of haz­ards that war­rant a slower posted speed.
