Hwy 49 Hwy 52

Highway 51 is a highway in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. It runs from the Alberta border near Compeer, Alberta, where it is preceded by Highway 12, to Highway 4 in Biggar, 1 km (12 mi) south of Highway 14. Highway 51 is approximately 155 km (96 mi) long. It passes through the town of Kerrobert, where it shares a 2 km (1 14 mi) concurrency with Highway 21 and Highway 31.[1]

History[edit]

The former western terminus of Highway 51 is at Highway 656, 10 km (6.2 mi) north of Springwater, where it met the former alignment of Highway 14.[2] When Highway 14 was realigned between Biggar and Landis, a portion of the bypassed section was renumbered and became part of Highway 51.

In 1999 the thin membrane surface section of Highway 51 east of Kerrobert was tested with a Cold in-place recycling or “CIR” method to rehabilitate highways. This CIR process is a cost-effective method which recycles the top surface of a road. This pulverized material is mixed with asphalt emulsion and spread and compacted back onto the highway surface. This surface is then recovered with a new seal dependent on traffic volume.[3]
