Traffic on Highway 3A at Yellow Lake was interupted periodically between November 6 -14 while work crews made repairs to the concrete barriers lining the highway around the lake.
Robert Adam, Government Communications and Public Engagement officer for the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure said that the ministry’s maintenance contractor undertook repair work to shoulder erosions along Highway 3A at Yellow Lake.
The crews also installed approximately 35 drainage barriers and constructed asphalt spillways to prevent future shoulder erosion along the section of highway, which had been extensively reconstructed by widening the right of way to include paved shoulders in 2011.
The work is now substantially complete, with a small amount of drainage work still to be done. The project should be fully completed by the end of this week.
“These repairs have strengthened the highway along the shoulders, improving safety for the travelling public,” Adam said in a statement from the ministry.
