One of Lloydminster’s busiest intersections is getting some short-term repairs this weekend.
The city says the road has deteriorated quicker than expected, so ASL Paving Ltd. will be installing a temporary asphalt overlay at the Highway 16 and College Drive.
Work is scheduled to begin on August 22nd at 7:30 a.m. and will wrap up on August 24th at 7 p.m., depending on the weather.
During construction, east-west traffic will see alternating lane reductions and north-south traffic will not be allowed. North-south traffic will be diverted through detours and signs will be posted ahead of time.
Drivers are reminded to slow down in construction zone, allow for extra travel time and obey all signs, detours and barriers.
A concrete block installation at the intersection is expected in 2021. It will include upgrades to the underground municipal services including water, sewer water and storm sewer main replacements. The concrete block will extend about 100 metres in all four directions of the intersection.
The total cost for the project is about $2.7 million with $1.7 million coming from the Saskatchewan Municipal Economic Enhancement Program.
