WEYBURN - The City of Weyburn started construction on June 10, to upgrade the traffic lights at the intersection of Government Road (Highway 13) and First Avenue (Highway 35). This project involves a complete rebuild of the traffic light infrastructure and is expected to be completed within two weeks.

During the construction period, the intersection will function as a four-way stop. Lane restrictions will be in place as crews work in the right-hand turning lanes.

Drivers are reminded to adhere to all posted signage regarding speed limits and lane restrictions to ensure the safety of both the construction workers and the public.

“Upgrading the traffic lights at this intersection is crucial for improving traffic flow through our city,” said Municipal Engineer Renee Cugnet. “We understand that this construction will temporarily disrupt traffic, and we appreciate the community’s patience and cooperation during this period to keep our workers and residents safe.”

Please plan your routes accordingly during the construction period and avoid traveling through this area if possible. The City appreciates your patience and cooperation during these construction activities and urges everyone to exercise caution while navigating through work zones.
