TWINNING ON HIGHWAY 1 CONTINUES

A tender has been awarded for surfacing a 12.1 km section of twinned lanes on

Highway 1 beginning just inside the Alberta border and continuing east.



"Work for this $3.8 million surfacing project should be completed by mid-August

2001," Highways and Transportation Minister Maynard Sonntag said. "Completion

of this job will require an estimated 83 full-time workers."



Anderson Rental and Paving Ltd. of Saskatoon was awarded this project.



Most of the surfacing project will take place on the new westbound lane, which

extends approximately one kilometre into the Province of Alberta. The Alberta

government has agreed to reimburse Saskatchewan Highways and Transportation for

the cost of twinning one kilometre past the provincial boundary.



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. Crushing for the project will begin in mid-January.



"We are determined to meet our goal of twinning Highway 1 west from Regina to

the Alberta border to increase the safety of the travelling public," Sonntag

said.
