SURFACING TO OCCUR ON HIGHWAY 2 NORTH OF WEYAKWIN

Repaving of a 13.5 km section of Highway 2 North of Weyakwin is ready to start.



"It is anticipated this $1.7 million project will begin immediately and should

be completed, weather permitting, by the end of October," Highways and

Transportation Minister Maynard Sonntag said. "Completion of this job will

require an estimated 36 full-time workers."



Mulder Construction & Materials Ltd. was awarded the contract as the lowest of

five bidders. The paving begins nine kilometres south of the junction of

Highways 936 and 2 and will continue north of this same junction.



The province is spending $34.6 million this year to preserve, maintain and

improve the condition of highways and airports in Northern Saskatchewan.



"We are working hard to revitalize our highways system in northern

Saskatchewan," Sonntag said. "We urge motorists to slow down and drive safely

when they come upon construction and maintenance."
