PAVING PROJECTS ANNOUNCED ON HIGHWAYS 4, 13 & 32

Highways and Transportation Minister Judy Bradley today announced 18.8

km of paving projects on Highway Nos. 4, 13, and 32.



"Collectively, the department is spending $1.9 million on these three

projects," Bradley said. "The projects are expected to start in mid

May and are planned for completion in mid September. An estimated 31

jobs will be used in completing the projects."



C.D. Botkin Construction Ltd. was awarded the contract for the paving

project as the lowest of five bidders. The paving project on Highway

No. 4 will be done on 5.0 km south of Junction 43. The paving project

on Highway No. 13 will be done on 8.7 km west of Eastend. The paving

project on Highway No. 32 will be done on 5.1 km through the community

of Abbey. The $1.9 million project cost includes department supplied

materials and services.



"A $15 million increase in the department's budget this year means a

very busy construction season and crews will be working hard to

improve and repair Saskatchewan roads and highway," Bradley said.

"The increased funding demonstrates our commitment to preserving our

investment in Saskatchewan's highway system."
