$50 Million In Highway Improvement Projects Announced In Spring Tender Plan

Released on June 20, 2019

The Government of Saskatchewan has released its 2019 Spring Tender schedule, which lists more than $50 million worth of highway improvement and safety projects that will be tendered in the next several weeks.  This is in addition to more than $250 million worth of construction announced in the Fall Tender Plan, released last September.

The 11 projects include more than 110 km in resurfacing, grading and paving, spot improvements, two bridge replacements or rehabilitations, and 21 culvert installations.

“The Government of Saskatchewan is focused on investing in our highways, with the release of $50 million in projects people can expect to see crews working on the road,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Lori Carr said.  “Please slow down and remain patient when passing through construction zones so our crews can upgrade our roads safely.”

Highlights include:

  • Highway 1 bridge replacement over the CPR near Swift Current;
  • Highway 1 intersection improvements including grading, paving and new ramps at Kalium access road;
  • Highway 6 resurfacing near Southey;
  • Highway 7 resurfacing west of Delisle;
  • Highway 39 resurfacing near Milestone; and
  • Highway 47 resurfacing south of Estevan.
While tender advertisements are underway, the start dates for these projects depend on when the tender is awarded, contractor availability and weather.  All tenders can be found at www.sasktenders.ca

A weekly highway construction update is also published on www.saskatchewan.ca/residents/transportation/highway-construction-projects/weekly-highway-construction-update to provide the travelling public with the latest details on projects underway to help plan safe and efficient travel.  Please check the Highway Hotline for road restriction information before planning your trip at www.saskatchewan.ca/highwayhotline

The Government of Saskatchewan has invested $9 billion in transportation infrastructure since 2008.
