IMPROVEMENTS TO HIGHWAY 6 NORTH OF REGINA

A tender has been awarded for structural improvements to 18.5 km of Highway 6

north of Regina this construction season.



"Work for this $2.5 million improvement project is anticipated to begin in late

May of 2001 and should be completed by late June," Highways and Transportation

Minister Pat Atkinson said. "Completion of this job will require an estimated

24 full-time workers."



Highway 6 north of Regina will receive a structural overlay. Road work will

consist of milling off the existing rough surface and replacing it with a new

asphalt surface. The improvement will start 16 km north of Regina and will

continue to half a kilometre south of the junction with Highway 99 in the

Qu'Appelle Valley.



ASL Paving Ltd. of Saskatoon was awarded this improvement project.



This improvement project was identified in the 2000/2001 Winter Tender Schedule

for Saskatchewan highway work, worth an estimated $90 million. The Winter

Tender Schedule ensures timely and efficient delivery of highway improvements

this spring. During February and March gravel will be hauled to the project

and motorists should watch for large trucks.



"Highway 6 is a major north/south highway that has been experiencing higher

volumes of truck traffic and general traffic," Atkinson said. "By

strengthening the base of this section, we are ensuring Highway 6 will be able

to support these heavier loads."



"Saskatchewan Highways and Transportation is working hard to fix roads across

the province to improve driver safety."
