$200 MILLION IN HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS READY FOR TENDER

Released on April 1, 2015

The provincial government will continue implementing this year’s record Highways and Infrastructure budget with the release of the spring tender plan.

The tender plan lists work the ministry intends to put on the market over the course of the 2015 construction season.  This year’s spring tender plan includes 54 projects valued at $200 million.

Combined with the fall tender plan released in September, there are more than 130 projects in progress with a value exceeding $400 million.

“This tender plan contains a number of projects that will keep our province growing, improve safety and renew our existing transportation infrastructure,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Nancy Heppner said.  “Projects include new infrastructure, repaving, as well as bridge and culvert work.”

Highlights include:

  • New overpasses at Warman and Martensville;
  • 12 km of repaving on Highway 11 between Girvin and Davidson;
  • Twinning Highway 39 between Estevan and Bienfait; and
  • Final paving of the section of Highway 22 over Pearl Creek that was washed out during last year’s flooding.

Tender advertisements will begin in April and continue throughout the summer.  Actual start dates for these projects depend on when the tender is awarded, contractor availability and weather.

This year’s Highways and Infrastructure budget is $842 million, the largest transportation budget in the province’s history.  With the 2015-16 Budget, the government has exceeded its 2011 commitment to invest $2.2 billion over four years by about half a billion dollars.
