RESURFACING HIGHWAY 31

Highway 31 northwest of Kerrobert will have a 5.4 km section resurfaced to

create a smoother drive for travellers.



"Work will begin on this $681,000 project immediately and should be completed

in late September," Highways and Transportation Minister Maynard Sonntag said.

"Completion of this job will require an estimated 15 full-time workers."



Westland Enterprizes Ltd. of Delisle was awarded this project as the lowest of

nine bidders.



"Highway 31 by Kerrobert has seen a recent increase in truck traffic due to

increased oil activity in the area, as well as a general increase in grain

traffic, that is resulting in road damage," Sonntag said. "We are working hard

to address these challenges by repairing high volume highways and preserving

our rural roads."



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.
