Swift Current MLA and Premier Brad Wall recently highlighted the $7 million Ministry of Highways project that includes resurfacing work on Highway 4 south of Cadillac currently underway. 

“This is one of the highway projects that top’s the priority list for so many of my constituents and area residents.” Wall said.  “I hope this project entourages those folks that even in a tight budget year there can be a response to what we as MLA’s have heard from so many.”
The 30km surfacing project stretches from approximately 24km north of the Highway 18 junction to the junction with Highway 13. The highway improvements began this summer and are expected to carry over into spring of next year. In addition to the project currently under construction and as part of the Ministry’s 2017 Fall Tender Plan, the Ministry has announced that it will be extending the Highway 4 project south to Val Marie.  
To date, approximately 20 km has been resurfaced.
The cost of the current project – excluding the extension south to Val Marie, is approximately $7 million.
“Tami and I drive that highway and we know how very much needed this work is. Folks who depend on #4 will now have a much smoother and much safer highway,” said Wall.  “This particular highway also has the potential to be a main connector from the Gulf of Mexico to north of Meadow Lake so there is certainly economic value as well.”
