The frustrations experienced and the grey hairs gained while trying to traverse the many detours through the Highway 39 twinning project will soon pay off.
"Construction is progressing. It remains on schedule to be completed and open to traffic by the end of the end of this month," shared Steve Shaheen with the Ministry of Highways.
"Traffic is being diverted onto the newly twinned Highway 39 lanes and a temporary crossover. The contractor has started removing the existing bridge, construction of the new service road utilizing the existing eastbound lanes of Highway 39 is ongoing, and the existing divided section of the highway is now restricted to single lane traffic."
He added a few items that people should keep in mind while navigating the area.
"You should know that the short detour traffic signal remains in place for the work on Highway 18. The contractor has completed paving on most of the project, and all grading work has been finished except the existing overpass."
Shaheen also reminded motorists to slow to 60 kilometers an hour and to obey all signs in the area.
While weather could throw a wrench into things, they remain confident that they will wrap up everything on time.
