Highways Minister Jeremy Cockrill stated, “We know the importance of the transportation system to our citizens as well as businesses in our province.” Our administration is extremely satisfied to be working in association with the Town of Stronghold Qu’Appelle on this roadway improvement drive. We must construct a safe transportation system, and if we cooperate, we can and will accomplish more.”

The approximately 1.8-kilometer highway improvement project will include curb and gutter replacement and resurfacing west of the Highway 35 junction. If the weather cooperates, the work should be finished by summer.

ASL Paving Ltd. is the contractor, and AECOM Prairie Road/Solutions will oversee the contract.

Gus Lagace, mayor of Fort Qu’Appelle, stated, “These improvements to our local infrastructure are very welcome” because of the substantial increase in traffic during the summer.
