As work progress along King Street, drivers are being asked once again, to slow down for everyone's safety. 

"The City of Estevan would like to remind the public construction work continues on King Street from Pine Avenue to Kensington Avenue," shared City Safety Officer, Helen Fornwald. "There is no through traffic allowed between this construction zone."

"The detour route continues along Petterson Drive and Rooney Road for southbound traffic and Bannatyne Ave and Henry Street for northbound traffic."

Estevan Shopper's Mall, Canadian Tire, Tim Horton's, Alliance Church, Midwest Surveys, Capital Energy, and Living Hope Church can be accessed through Petterson Drive. Microtel has limited access through Kensington Avenue, and No Frills customers can use Spruce Drive.

"Remeber, removing barricades in construction zones is extremely dangerous and constitutes an offence under the Criminal Code of Canada as well as the Traffic Safety Act."

"Estevan Police Service members will be monitoring the area as well as conducting the enforcement. Anyone caught driving through or moving the barricades could face serious charges."

"For the duration of this construction project, the public is requested to avoid this area and find an alternate route. This includes pedestrians and bikers crossing the site."

"It is important for motorists to allow for additional time when travelling for the duration of the project. 

"We ask for your patience and obey all construction signage including reduce speed, road closures, local traffic only, men working, as well as the detour signs."
