REGINA, Sask. — Saskatchewan has released its spring tender schedule, which serves as a glimpse of what’s to come in terms of highways projects.

More than 30 projects were outlined in the document, valued at more than $53 million.

“The Government of Saskatchewan is taking action on our commitment to build a safe and efficient transportation infrastructure,” Highways and Transportation Minister Mark Wartman says. “Our spring tender schedule will help us achieve this goal.”

Among the priorities outlined in the schedule are: $21.5 million for twinning projects on Hwy. 1; $7.5 million for rural road reconstruction; $1.2 million for northern highway improvements; and $21.1 million to preserve and maintain existing northern roads. That’s in addition to the projects outlined in the winter tender schedule.

“We are focused on improving our national highway system, resurfacing provincial highways, rebuilding our rural roads, and improving access to northern Saskatchewan,” Wartman says. “Saskatchewan’s future is wide open and these improvements to our infrastructure will help us continue to ensure economic benefits for the people of Saskatchewan.”
