Twinned Saskatchewan highway now open

North Battleford, Saskatchewan – The Government of Canada and the Province of Saskatchewan have announced that a 13.6 km section of twinned lanes on Highway 16 west of North Battlefield has been opened.

The project, which cost approximately $7.7 million, was cost-shared on a 50/50 basis through the Canada-Saskatchewan Strategic Infrastructure Fund. Investments through the fund are directed to large-scale projects of major national and regional significance in areas vital to sustaining economic growth.

Also underway is a new alignment for the twinning of Highway 16 along a route north of Maidstone. The grading work for the $3.3 million project is expected to be completed by September 1, 2005. Surfacing is continuing on previously completed sections of Highway 16 and completion is expected by September 1, 2005.
