The City of Weyburn is looking to replace the traffic lights at the intersection of Highway 39 and Government Road this week, which will mean the intersection will be closed for a period of time.
The intersection will be closed starting Thursday morning and is expected to be re-opened Friday afternoon. There will be detours set in place for local and highway traffic around the intersection. Heavy trucks are being re-routed on Highway 13/1st Avenue NE and 16th Street. With that in mind, the public is asked to avoid those intersections if possible due to the increase in traffic.
