Thinking about going to Lake Diefenbaker this long weekend? Be aware there is some highway construction.

Highway 19 south of Elbow and north of Bridgeford will be closed while Canadian Pacific Railway does rail crossing repairs.

Coming from the north by Elbow, expect a long detour on gravel roads that will add about one hour to your travel time.

Meanwhile, from the south will be less impacted with a short 10-minute detour on gravel roads.

The closures are expected to last until Saturday.
