Motorists can expect delays on Highway 61 near Foremost to accommodate widening and reconstruction of the highway.

The work is underway and affects 14 kilometres of the highway between Foremost and Etzikom. Traffic will be reduced to one lane alternating and may be completely stopped at various times. The speed limit will be reduced to 50 km/h through the construction zone.

The project will be completed by Oct. 15, weather permitting.

Motorists should use caution in the area and obey all signs, message boards, and flag people. Motorists are reminded that fines for speeding are doubled through construction zones when workers are present.
