Bridge Building Projects on Highway 3 Get Underway

Released on August 14, 2014

Weekly Construction Update

About $4 million worth of work begins this week on the replacement of three bridges on Highway 3 in east-central Saskatchewan.

“We have the goods the world wants, whether it is food, fuel or fertilizer,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Nancy Heppner said.  “By replacing old timber bridges like the ones on Highway 3, we are ensuring the safe and efficient movement of people and goods in this important area of our province.”

Two bridges are being replaced, east and west of Armit, near the Manitoba border; one bridge over Armit River and another over Kinakin Creek.  A third timber bridge is being replaced east of Hudson Bay on Smoking Tent Creek.

All three bridges are being replaced with precast concrete structures.  In all cases traffic will be accommodated during construction with a temporary bridge and signal lights.      

The weekly construction update provides Saskatchewan residents with the latest details on current projects to help plan safe and efficient travel throughout the summer and fall.  To learn more about Saskatchewan work zones, head to www.highways.gov.sk.ca/workzone/.

Additional travel information about emergency road closures, the status of ferries and barges and other road activities can also be found on the Highway Hotline at www.saskatchewan.ca/live/transportation/highway-hotline.  It's also available by calling 306-787-7623 in Regina, 306-933-8333 in Saskatoon, the SaskTel cellular network at *ROAD, and toll-free across Canada at 1-888-335-7623.
