19.7 km of #35 to get new surface
FTLComm - Tisdale - Tuesday, August 26, 2008

Surveyors were busy this afternoon marking the highway just sourth of town in preparation for resurfacing of highway 35. (right) The equipment to do the job is parked in the former Shell bulk plant yard on the south side of town.

From the surveyor stakes it looks like there will be some modification of the entrance into Louis Dreyfus, which is a good thing.

Highway 35 has just been steadily getting worse with a high volume of heavy traffic its surface is very poor.


The surface on #35 has been completely rebuilt from Wadena to Elfros and part way north of Wadena toward Rose Valley. This (left) is how the highway looked on August 12th as the surface was completely removed south of Wadena, new underlay put down and a new surface put on over that.

It is unfortunate that only 19.7 Km are slated for resurfacing because the whole highway from here to Wadena needs a new top.
