Construction On Highways 9 And 10 Passing Lanes Begins This Fall

The Government of Saskatchewan is pleased to announce that Yorkton based Potzus Paving & Road Maintenance Ltd. has been awarded the contract for safety improvements including passing lanes on Highway 9 and Highway 10.

This is the first design-build roadway contract in Saskatchewan and includes six sets of passing lanes, intersection improvements and realignments, access consolidation, 55 km of resurfacing, replacement and upgrading of a significant number of culverts, and intelligent transportation systems such as weather monitoring sensors.

The cost of the project is about $34.9 million with a scheduled completion date of October 15, 2020. New passing lanes opened last month including one set on Highway 2 north of Moose Jaw and two sets of passing lanes between Rosetown and Fiske on Highway 7.

The Government of Saskatchewan has invested $9 billion in highways infrastructure since 2008, improving more than 14,000 kilometres of Saskatchewan highways.
