RESURFACING ON HIGHWAY 7 WEST OF DELISLE

A tender has been awarded for resurfacing 6.9 km of Highway 7 near Delisle

during the upcoming construction season.



"Work for this $0.9 million resurfacing project is anticipated to begin in mid-

July of 2001 and should be completed by late September," Highways and

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

require an estimated 20 full-time workers."



The resurfacing project on Highway 7 will take place approximately 25 km west

of Delisle and will continue west for 6.9 km. Drivers are asked to watch for

large trucks hauling crushed gravel in the Swanson and Delisle region during

the months of February and March.



Potzus Paving & Road Maintenance Ltd. of Yorkton was awarded this resurfacing

project.



This resurfacing 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.



"Highway 7 provides a major highway link between Saskatoon and Calgary and also

provides a link to Saskatoon for southwestern Saskatchewan," Sonntag said.

"This has lead to an increase in both heavy and light traffic volumes seen on

this highway."



"It's essential to keep our high volume highways in good driving condition to

ensure public safety."
