SaskEnergy makes its mark

FTLComm - Tisdale - Wednesday, October 23, 2002

The Department of Highways discovered to no one's surprise that the busiest intersection in North Eastern Saskatchewan is the intersection of highways thirty-five and three. From heavy trucks to tourists this is where most folks have to pass through and this morning fifty feet away SaskEnergy began two holes, this one in the road surface.

SaskEnergy had recently installed a larger line to supply customers on the East side of #35 South of

the tourist booth and this produced unequal pressure in the line and the plan was to abandon the present line which is buried beneath the highway.

Dagg Construction began the excavation this morning and though things went smoothly on the South side the road surface hole is going to


be a rough ride for us all. Department of Highways shares in the cost of the surface but it will be up to the town to try and fix the resulting lurch. With the paving company now long gone this will mean a cold patch over the dig but for now getting through over a foot of asphalt is taking time. Just after four workers were putting up barriers around the mess and work continues tomorrow.
