Work to get underway on $53M passing lane project in southern Saskatchewanc

A project to add five sets of passing lanes on Saskatchewan Highway 39 between Estevan and Weyburn is set to get off the ground.

The province awarded the $53.3 million contract for the project to CoCo Group late last month.

“The safe movement of people and goods along our provincial highways is vital,” said Greg Ottenbreit, the province’s Highways and Infrastructure Minister, in a release. “The new passing lanes will make this busy highway safer and improve efficiency for travellers in the southeast.”

Along with the new sets of passing lanes, the project includes resurfacing work between the two southern Saskatchewan cities. Shoulder widening, culvert replacements and the installation of new variable message signs are also part of the package.

The roadwork is scheduled to be complete by summer 2021.
