RESURFACING ON HIGHWAY 3 NEAR PRAIRIE RIVER

A tender has been awarded for resurfacing 8.3 km of Highway 3 near Prairie

River during the upcoming construction season.



"Work for this $1.2 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 43 full-time workers."



The resurfacing project on Highway 3 will begin approximately 10 km west of the

Prairie River and will continue 8.3 km west. Crushing and hauling for this

project is taking place in the Prairie River region this winter and will be

completed by March.



G. W. Construction Ltd. of Buchanan, Saskatchewan was awarded this 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 3 has seen a major increase in heavy truck traffic in the past few

years, which is resulting in road deterioration," Sonntag said. "We are

continuing to work hard to deliver highway improvement projects to our highway

network throughout Saskatchewan."
