EDMONTON, Alta. — Alberta has capped off one of its busiest construction seasons in its history, with $4.1 billion invested into the province’s paved roads.
The province built 246 km of new highways at a cost of $310 million and re-paved about 861 km at a further cost of $260 million, the province announced yesterday.
The 1,100 km of paving completed this year by Alberta would allow one to travel from Calgary in the south to High Level in the north, Premier Ed Stelmach said yesterday. Major paving projects were completed on Hwys. 519, 561, 570 and 813. Major re-paving projects occurred on Deerfoot Trail in Calgary and Hwys. 15, 39 and 560.
Construction was also started on the northeast leg of Calgary’s ring road and it continued on the northwest leg.
