“For everything that we do, it’s a lot nicer driving around the
province when you’re on smooth highways than it is bouncing down
some pretty rough roads… and we have been on some bad ones,”
Arneson said. “And it seems those bad roads get a little rougher during
the winter months.
“They need maintenance… and a lot of people know that. It’s a
continuous job to keep our roads in good shape.”
It’s a daunting task keeping Saskatchewan roads and highways
in drivable condition. This province is home to more kilometres
of highways than any other in the country. Coupled with a growing
population, that means added stress on the asphalt because of
“There’s a lot more traffic on the highways these days, and it’s not
just small vehicles,” Arneson said. “We’re seeing a lot of heavy truck
traffic and semis out there. That’s how we move our products. It all
takes a toll on our roads.”
Arneson admits it was not his plan to become a farmer like his father.
Upon his high school graduation, Arneson moved to Saskatoon
and became involved in the construction industry.
A carpenter by trade, he eventually ascended into a management
position at Allan Construction in Saskatoon that sees him look after
the equipment and operators on the civil side. Has been in that
role for about 12 years.
Arneson takes over the SHCA board chairman role from Allan
Barilla as part of the natural two-year rotation. Arneson was the first
chairman for the past two years while Barilla was chairman.
He says he has big shoes to fill.
“They roads need
a lot of people know
that. It’s a continuous
job to keep our roads
in good shape.”
