Bridge repairs nearly finished


Permanent repairs are nearing completion on a number of bridges in southeast Saskatchewan, just weeks after severe flooding caused damage.

“Engineers and crews have been hard at work since the flooding hit to ensure we restore full access to our highway system as soon as possible,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Nancy Heppner said. “There is still work to be done, but we are well on our way to restoring our transportation system in the southeast.”

Repairs to bridges on Highway 8 over the Antler River south of Highway 361, and Highway 361 at the Storthoaks Access Road, are now finished. The final step was paving, which happened in late July.

Bridges for Highway 18 over the Antler River east of Carnduff, and Highway 13 over the Antler River east of Redvers, have been repaired. They will be paved once the work is tendered and awarded.

A temporary bridge for Highway 18 east of Carievale will be replaced with a culvert. The temporary bridge is restricted to a weight of 20 tonnes, and a width of 4.3 metres.

Until these bridges are paved, drivers should be aware of the potential for rough or soft spots. Motorists need to slow to the posted speed when crossing.
