Ottawa, Ontario – Government funding has been provided to three applicants for their proposals for an all-weather roadway in northern Saskatchewan. The proposed Highway 914 project would run from McArthur River Mine Site to Cigar Lake Mine Site Project.
The funding, awarded by the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency through the Participant Funding Program, has awarded $20,000 to the Kineepik Métis Local, English River First Nation and the Saskatchewan Environmental Society. It will be used to assist participation in the upcoming steps in the comprehensive study process, including the review of the study report.
The Saskatchewan Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure is proposing to construct an all-weather road between the existing access roads to the McArthur River and Cigar Lake mine sites to provide a more efficient route for trucks to access the mines in northern Saskatchewan.
