How to fix a flood-damaged Saskatchewan highway

A section of highway in Saskatchewan that suffered a major fail due to the flooding in June has been fixed and is ready for traffic again.

A section of Highway 16 in Saskatchewan that suffered a major fail from the flooding at the end of June has been fixed and is ready for traffic again.

Pavement on the road, about 200 kilometres east of Saskatoon, crumbled under the force of a massive flow of water from Birch Creek.

On Wednesday, after the patch job was completed, government officials released a series of photos showing the progress of the work.
