Gull Lake is going to be getting some new pavement, courtesy of the Sask. Ministry of Highways.

Close to $5.4 million is being invested by the province into a new paved surface, gutters, and curbs on a section of Highway 37. This particular length of highway happens to run from just south of Gray Street, to a little north of Seventh Street in Gull Lake. 

Dan Palmer, spokesperson for the Sask. Ministry of Highways is confident the very hassles that plague this section of road will be alleviated by the work being done.

"The project is intended to improve the driving surface and water drainage on this highway," said Palmer. "Which of course will also benefit the community."

The work is weather-dependent, which means days like today probably aren't ideal for progress. Should everything go smoothly, work will begin this month, and be wrapped up sometime this fall. 

The Sask. Ministry of Highways has hired ASL Paving to do this work. During their operation, residents can expect detours around active paving. For up-to-date information, they can check the Highway Hotline to see how the detours are implemented. 

"Once the project is underway, we certainly appreciate your patience and understanding," said Palmer.
