WEYBURN — A two-month road construction project began on Monday on First Avenue NE in Weyburn, extending from Government Road to about 10th Street.

During this period, road closures will be implemented, restricting access to residences and businesses in the area.

“We understand road construction can be an inconvenience. As we begin the road construction on First Avenue NE, we ask everyone to prioritize safety by adhering to traffic restrictions and detour signs,” said municipal engineer Renee Cugnet. “Navigating through work zones with caution will help ensure the safety of both workers and residents.”

Non-local and heavy traffic will detour down Highway 39 and 16th Street. Local traffic will be allowed periodically as the project goes on. Hospital access will be maintained via the back alley and at least one of the three entrances along First Avenue. Only one access to Highfield Crescent will be closed at a time.

The City of Weyburn realizes this will create a significant inconvenience for residents and business owners along the street during construction. This work is of vital importance to maintaining infrastructure and every effort will be made to complete the work in a timely and efficient manner.

Motorists are asked to plan their routes accordingly during the construction period and avoid travelling through work zones.
