Road Construction Notice

January 28, 2021

Local Residents and Landowners

Re: Road Construction Notice-Clay-cap project on TWP RD 170

Please be advised that the RM of Moose Jaw No. 161 will be proceeding with the clay-cap of 2 miles of TWP RD 170 (Caribou St. W.) heading east from the Boharm Grid. It is anticipated the project will be taking place in May 2021 and last approximately 3 weeks, depending on weather conditions.

Gee Bee Construction from Kipling, SK was awarded the tender for the project. Clay material will be hauled from RM owned property in Boharm and applied to the road surface.

While there will be some ditch work completed for sloping, etc., Gee Bee will not be impacting or disturbing any trees in the process. Furthermore, work will be conducted in a way to allow traffic to flow on ½ of the roadway while construction occurs on the remaining half.

Council for the RM of Moose Jaw appreciates your patience throughout this process. The result will provide a stronger and safer road surface for many years to come.

Please do not hesitate to call the Municipal office with any comments or concerns.
