People in Moose Jaw could start seeing significant work on repaving High Street West after nearly a year of construction.
The street was dug up last year as part of the water main replacement program. The work was supposed to be completed in November.
Ongoing delays have been a source of major frustration for businesses who have complained about losing money. The street in Moose Jaw’s business district also topped the list of CAA Saskatchewan’s worst roads.
The city took over construction from a private company in May, promising to repave the street.
In its weekly construction update, the city reported the 300 block has been reopened with temporary asphalt after work on sewer connections was complete.
The 400 block and 700 block of High Street require work on sewer connections then trenching and compaction work will be done before temporary asphalt is added. Work on those two blocks is expected to be completed by the middle of the week.
Work on the 500 and 600 block of High Street is expected to be complete by July 3 and then final resurfacing work can begin moving west from the 300 block.
Work is expected to be done on High Street either in mid-July or closer to the end of the month.
