PRINCE ALBERT — Construction is underway on a $21.4 million twinning project on Highway 3, west of Prince Albert.

The Highway 3 twinning project will cover almost eight kilometres and will run from the junction of Highway 2 to the Shell River bridge. The design includes a four-lane highway with a concrete median barrier in the centre of the road, four protected T-intersections, as well as new lighting throughout the corridor.

Aecon Transportation West Ltd. will be responsible for construction.

The Highway 3 safety improvements are in addition to new passing lanes which opened last fall between Shellbrook and the Shell River Bridge.
