In recent weeks, traffic congestion on Highway 2, south of Tuxford,has tested the patience of motorists.

Seal coating, a process that provides a waterproof surface and prevents moisture from entering and weakening road beds, is being undertaken by construction crews.

Although it is expected to be complete by the weekend, the construction has caused routine 20-minute delays for drivers in both directions because crews have squeezed drivers into one lane on part of the highway.

However, the delays were not to blame for one Moose Jaw woman's misfortune on May 30.

While driving home through the area, the woman had a piece of rock smash through her windshield, littering shards of glass over her person. She told the Times-Herald it forced her to replace her windshield a third time, all of which were the result of driving on Highway 2.

Check back Thursday for more on this story.
