Moosomin weigh scale closed for scale replacement

Project expected to wrap up in May.
Moosomin is one of nine weigh scale locations across Saskatchewan.

MOOSOMIN — Drivers along Highway 1 will have noticed the weigh scales near Moosomin have not been open for the last few weeks. According to the Saskatchewan Highway Patrol and the Ministry of Highways, this is due to a scale replacement project currently underway.

The project is being managed by SaskBuilds and is anticipated to cost around $1 million—funded by the Ministry of Highways. The World-Spectator has learned that PCL Construction of Regina was awarded the tender back in December to replace two weigh scales with a winning bid of $633,472.96. The construction phase of the project began last month.

“The Moosomin scale decks are being replaced because they could no longer be calibrated to accurately measure commercial vehicle weights,” said provincial government spokesperson Ariane Whiting. Public access to the scales will be closed until the project is complete, which is targeted to wrap up in May.

Moosomin is one of nine weigh scale locations across Saskatchewan with other locations being Estevan, Kindersley, Langham, Lloydminster, Melfort, Regina, Swift Current and Yorkton.
