Last Thursday the Government of Saskatchewan announced the intersection improvements in the Kindersley area had reached the midway point, with two of the four projects reaching a midway point. The other two had been completed. 

Funding for the projects is thanks to this year’s $17.6 million Safety Improvements Program. They are among more than 1000 other highway safety projects across the province since 2019.  

In a recent release, it is stated the province is investing an estimated $6.5 million for safety improvements at two intersections on Highway 7 in Kindersley. 

One intersection is Highway 7 and Highway 21, and the other is Highway 7 and Ditson Drive.  

The work includes road widening, repaving, concrete work, street and traffic light alterations, and traffic sign alterations. 

Construction on these intersections began in May and is scheduled to be completed in October pending weather. 

Motorists are reminded to check the Highway Hotline for road conditions and situations on the highway, and to slow down while going through road work. 

The Government of Saskatchewan has invested more than $13 billion in transportation infrastructure since 2008, improving more than 20, 700 kilometers of highway.
