New Overpasses In Martensville And Warman Open Ahead Of Schedule

Released on October 26, 2018

The Government of Saskatchewan announced today the overpass project at Martensville and Warman will open to traffic this fall, nearly one year ahead of schedule.

“Martensville and Warman are two of Saskatchewan’s fastest-growing communities and we are thrilled to see the opening of these overpasses to traffic,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Lori Carr said.  “This project will get families to work and home safely by improving traffic flow.”

The opening of the overpasses allows drivers to safely travel over the highway on a bridge, and also provides safer access onto the highway in both directions.

Finishing touches will be completed during the next construction season and will include lighting, signage and landscaping.

The Highway 11 project near Warman comprises construction of a new two-lane overpass for Highway 305, on and off ramps, and about 5 km of new four-lane divided highway as well as improvements to the rail crossing and safety upgrades at the Highway 11 and Ferry Road/Central Street intersection.

It also includes construction of about 3 km of new four-lane divided roadway for Highway 12 at Martensville and the new two-lane overpass for Township Road 384 with on and off ramps, which are open to traffic.  Further improvements include the reconfiguration of the Centennial Drive and Main Street intersection, and a new Highway 12 exit ramp and signalized intersection at Centennial Drive and Fourth Street.

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.

“I’m thrilled that the Martensville and Warman Overpass project is on track to be completed so far ahead of schedule,” said Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness.  “Easing traffic congestion and improving safety along Canada’s major trade routes is a priority for our government.  We’re proud to have funded these important improvements to Highway 11 and 12, which will help bring new economic opportunities to the region.”

The $60.6 million project in Martensville and Warman is being overseen by Peter Kiewit Sons ULC.

During the remainder of construction, motorists are reminded to obey signs, be alert and slow down when slower speeds are posted in the work zone.

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