  • Print

The province will upgrade and repair more than 40 bridges and improve some 1,160 kilometres of highway in the coming year.

The government announced its 2013 infrastructure tendering schedule in a press release this morning.

Included among the projects are:

  • a multi-year effort to upgrade the Perimeter Highway near Brady Road,
  • rehabilitation of the overpass on the Perimeter Highway at PTH 75,
  • rehabilitation of the overpass structure on the Perimeter Highway at the Trans-Canada Highway East.

The province will also repave the westbound lanes and shoulders on the Trans-Canada Highway from Portage la Prairie to PTH16, add turning lanes and safety features to the intersection of PTH 3 and PTH 23, begin a multi-year project to significantly improve PTH 13 from Carman to Elm Creek, complete paving to PTH 16 from Binscarth to east of Foxwarren, and widen shoulders of the eastbound lanes of the Trans-Canada Highway from the Brokenhead River to east of the Trans-Canada Highway.

Two big projects cost-shared projects with the federal government were also announced:

  • the completion of CentrePort Canada Way, a new roadway connecting CentrePort to the national and international highway system; and
  • intersection reconstruction of the Trans-Canada Highway through Headingley.
