Permanent Repairs Well Underway on Flood-Damaged Bridges

Released on July 24, 2014

Weekly Construction Update

Permanent repairs are nearing completion just weeks after severe flooding damaged a number of bridges in southeastern Saskatchewan.

“Engineers and crews have been hard at work since the flooding hit to ensure we restore full access to our highway system as soon as possible,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Nancy Heppner said.  “There is still work to be done, but we are well on our way to restoring our transportation system in the southeast.”

  • Repairs to bridges on Highway 8 over the Antler River south of Highway 361 and Highway 361 at the Storthoaks Access are complete except for paving, which is scheduled for this weekend, subject to weather.
  • Bridges on Highway 18 over the Antler River east of Carnduff and Highway 13 over the Antler River east of Redvers have been repaired and will be paved once the work is tendered and awarded.
  • A temporary bridge on Highway 18 east of Carievale will be replaced with a culvert.  The temporary bridge is restricted to a weight of 20 tonnes gross vehicle weight, and a width of 4.3 metres.
Until these bridges are paved, drivers should be aware of the potential for rough or soft spots and slow to the posted speed when crossing.

Additional travel information about emergency road closures, weight restrictions, construction and other road activities can be found on the Highway Hotline at www.saskatchewan.ca/live/transportation/highway-hotline.  It is 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.

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.
