The City of Swift Current wishes to advise residents and motorists that the annual paving program will begin today with spot repairs in various areas of the city, which will result in brief traffic restrictions to accommodate the work.
The paving program will continue throughout May and into the summer months during favourable weather. When traffic is impacted significantly in an area, the City will advise with additional news releases, social media posts, and notices to Emergency Medical Services. For up-to-date progress on the program, residents can review the Construction Updates page on the City’s website at http://www.swiftcurrent.ca/construction
“In general, we want to bring the public’s attention to paving season so that everyone is prepared for construction zones. Traffic can be affected, such as limited to one lane for brief periods as patching repairs are made, but there will be signage to guide people through the construction,” explains Mitch Minken, General Manager of Infrastructure & Operations.
The City would like to thank residents and motorists in advance for their patience and cooperation.
