SURFACING TO BEGIN ON HIGHWAYS 4 AND 14 NEAR BIGGAR

Surfacing will soon begin on 5.2 km of Highways 4 and 14 near Biggar.



"On-road work for this $1.1 million project is anticipated to begin immediately

with the completion targeted for late September," Highways and Transportation

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

estimated 40 full-time workers."



Anderson Rental & Paving Ltd. of Saskatoon was awarded the contract as the

lowest of four bidders. The paving will begin on Highway 4 just south of its

junction with Highway 51 and extend to its junction with Highway 14. Paving

work will also take place on Highway 14 adjacent to Biggar.



"The department will continue to work hard to improve our highway network

across the province," Sonntag said. "Highways 4 and 14 are seeing an increase

in heavy truck traffic and will benefit from this improvement."



Across the province, there will be 101 major projects on 53 different

highways. Highways and Transportation's 2000 budget is $250 million, the

largest in the department's history.



Motorists are asked to drive safely through the Orange Zone and watch for

construction signs and equipment.
