Government to Invest More Than $40 Million Into Bridges

Released on July 7, 2016

There are 36 bridge replacements and rehabilitations budgeted for in the 2016-17 fiscal year, totalling more than $40 million.  This is in addition to the 212 bridge projects completed since 2008-09.

“Our commitment to enhance infrastructure in our growing province reaches far beyond roads,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Nancy Heppner said.  “We’ve increased our budget for bridges by almost 76 per cent since 2008, reaching a total investment of more than $250 million.”

Maintaining bridges ensures the structural integrity so they can safely support traffic on our highways, support economic growth, and providing drainage through the road which reduces the risk of flooding to the road and surrounding area.  Currently, new bridges are being constructed on Highway 21 near Maple Creek, Highway 56 near the Pasqua Lake access and at three locations on Highway 165 near La Ronge.
