IMPROVEMENTS TO HIGHWAY 1 ANNOUNCED

A tender has been awarded for resurfacing a 13.6 km section of Highway 1 west

of Regina near the junction of Highway 6.



"Work for this $2.1 million resurfacing project is anticipated to begin in mid-

May of 2001 and should be completed by mid-August," Highways and Transportation

Minister Maynard Sonntag said. "Completion of this job will require an

estimated 24 full-time workers."



ASL Paving Ltd. of Saskatoon was awarded this project.



The resurfacing project will take place on the westbound lanes of Highway 1

from the junction with Highway 6 west to the Grand Coulee Access. Work will

start this week with crushing and haul to ASL's plant site in Regina's north

industrial area.



This surfacing 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.



"It's important to keep our high volume highways that are part of the National

Highway System in good driving condition," Sonntag said. "Motorists in this

area will notice major improvements to Highway 1 once work is completed this

construction season."
