Construction project timelines can sometimes be a bit unpredictable, and the City of Weyburn truly appreciate the community’s patience in regards to the 16th St. and 1st Ave. NE project.
Construction projects, by their nature, don’t always align perfectly with initial end dates. That’s why approximate timelines are provided – to keep you informed while allowing for some flexibility. Additionally, construction schedules are often dependent on the weather.
Crews are mobilizing for milling with paving starting next week. Contractors are working hard to have the essential steps complete as quickly as possible. As well, there are different contractors and crews on this project, with lots of moving pieces involved.
The City of Weyburn appreciates the public’s patience and understanding as we work towards improving our city.

As of Thursday, Aug. 24, the intersection of 1st Ave NE and 16th St. will be under construction. This work will take approximately three weeks. Local and truck route detours will be in place.
This project aims to repair deteriorating asphalt and increase level of service in the area. A turning lane and bypass lane for the south service road will assist southbound traffic flow on 16th St.
Long-term plans for the intersection include installation of traffic lights. This will prolong the life of the asphalt by decreasing the stopping/starting of heavy trucks, which creates rutting in the asphalt.
The City appreciates the patience of the public during this project and asks drivers to avoid the area when travelling.
