A major infrastructure project in the City of Weyburn is officially wrapped up. With the last of the paving being completed, the intersection of 16th Street and 1st Avenue NE re-opened Tuesday.
The work included a rebuild of the road surface, which had become badly rutted over the years. Additionally, a bypass lane was constructed to make it easier for traffic to flow onto 16th Street heading south.
The work was done in partnership with the provincial government's Urban-Highway Connector Program, and the construction work was handled by Torrent Energy Services and their subcontractors.
While the construction is finished, there is still some work on the radar for the intersection. It is hoped in the coming years the controls at the intersection will be changed from a four-way stop to traffic lights.
