Released on September 29, 2014
The Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure is preparing to release tenders that will see nearly 800,000 tonnes of asphalt laid down on more than 320 km of provincial highways.
The Ministry today released its fall tender plan. The tender plan contains construction projects for next year’s construction season. This year’s tender plan includes 80 contracts, consisting of bridge and culvert projects, grading, paving, repaving and road repair with an estimated value of $206.8 million. The tender plan is available at www.highways.gov.sk.ca/tender/.
“Our government is committed to making transportation investments that contribute to continued economic growth and improved quality of life,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Nancy Heppner said. “At the same time, we are equally committed to funding work that protects the substantial investment which has already been made in Saskatchewan’s highway system.”
The tender plan represents the first round of projects initially placed for the 2015 construction season. Finalization of the projects on the tender plan and additional projects are subject to the 2015-16 provincial budget.
The government has invested a record $4.3 billion in transportation infrastructure since 2008.
