Peter Kewit Infrastructure Co. Selected to Design and Build Martensville and Warman Overpasses

Released on July 29, 2016

Peter Kiewit Infrastructure Co. (PKIC) has been awarded a $60.6 million contract to build two overpasses at Martensville (Highway 12) and Warman (Highway 11).  PKIC, which had the greatest concentration of Saskatchewan partners in its bid, was one of three companies vying for the contract.

“The overpasses will improve safety in Warman and Martensville, two of the fastest-growing communities in Saskatchewan,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Nancy Heppner said.  “I’m extremely pleased that Saskatchewan companies will be playing a major role in the design and construction of the new overpasses.”

Under the design-build partnership with the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure, the PKIC-led consortium is responsible for the design and construction of the overpasses.  In addition to allowing for innovative ways of staging construction, the benefits of a design-build model include greater schedule and cost certainty.

The Government of Canada will contribute up to fifty per cent of total eligible costs through the Provincial-Territorial Infrastructure Component – National and Regional Projects and the Government of Saskatchewan will be responsible for all remaining costs of the project. 

 

With approximately 14,000 vehicles per day on Highway 12, the new interchange will disperse traffic along Main Street and Centennial Drive in Martensville, reducing congestion and providing safer access to current and future developments.

In Warman, the Highway 11/305 overpass will offer a safe route in and out of the community.  It will also provide an opportunity for future road network expansion, while accommodating traffic during construction.

PKIC was selected after successfully completing a two-stage transparent procurement process that consisted of a Request for Qualifications and a Request for Proposals, as well as a rigourous evaluation.

Partners on the project include:
  • Westridge Construction Ltd. (Regina);
  • KPCL Dirt Movers (Estevan);
  • Clifton Associates (Regina);
  • McElhanney Consulting Services; and
  • Great Northern Engineering Consultants.
Pre-construction work will begin in the next few months with completion scheduled for the fall of 2019.

The Government of Saskatchewan has invested $6.3 billion in transportation infrastructure since 2008 to improve more than 11,000 kilometres of roads and highways.
