MOOSE JAW – The City of Moose Jaw advises that a paving project and CN train tracks upgrade on Thatcher Drive West continues and has been slightly delayed due to rain.

Crews are paving Thatcher Drive West from VLA Gate to 13th Avenue NW, including both VLA Gate & 13th Avenue NW intersections, and the construction includes upgrades to the CN track.
