The $28 million Highway 305 project is open to traffic between Martensville and Warman (Highways 12 and 11).
“This new highway is in response to the tremendous growth we’ve been seeing in the area and will provide an important connector between these two growing communities,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Nancy Heppner said. “This is an example of how the Saskatchewan Plan for Growth creates opportunities for future development and responds to population growth.”
The Highway 305 project involved realigning the highway, upgrading it from a Thin Membrane Surface to full pavement, adding shoulders and raising the road. It also included construction on 10th Avenue in Martensville from its junction with Lutheran Road to its junction with Main Street.
“Highway 305 creates a much safer and more efficient route between our two cities, benefiting residents and businesses alike,” Warman Mayor Sheryl Spence said. “This investment in core infrastructure by the provincial government is in line with the tremendous amount of growth our region is experiencing, and allows us to continue to generate new economic development opportunities and job creation in the area.”
Construction began during the fall of 2012. Some clean-up and minor work will be required in 2015, so please watch for people working adjacent to the highway.
The government has invested a record $4.3 billion in transportation infrastructure since 2008.
