Construction Remains on Schedule for $60.6 Million Overpass Project

Released on July 17, 2018

About 60 Per Cent Complete

The Government of Saskatchewan announced today the $60.6 million overpass project at Martensville and Warman remains on schedule.  The project is designed to improve safety for two of Saskatchewan’s fastest-growing communities.

“The growth in Martensville and Warman is phenomenal, and we are pleased to see the overpass construction progressing so well,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister David Marit said.  “We are looking forward to getting this project completed to improve traffic flow and safety for people getting home or to work.”
“The safety of motorists is important to us and we’re reminding daily commuters that Main Street will be closed for a month,” Martensville Mayor Kent Muench said.  “This will allow for the completion of the east abutment, providing access to the new bridge.”

With approximately 14,400 vehicles per day on Highway 12, the new interchange at Martensville will disperse traffic along Main Street and Centennial Drive, 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.  With 17,700 vehicles per day, it will also provide an opportunity for future road network expansion, while accommodating traffic during construction.

The Government of Canada is contributing up to 50 per cent of 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.

During construction, motorists are reminded to obey signs, be alert and slow down through the work zone.

The Government of Saskatchewan has invested $8.4 billion in highways and infrastructure since 2008, improving more than 13,000 kms of provincial highways.
