Manitoba releases tendering schedule for next year
The Province of Manitoba has released its 2013 construction tendering schedule, continuing its 10-year commitment to upgrade infrastructure across the province.
“We have completed many of the major repairs of roads and bridges damaged in last year’s flood and have made record investments in our roads and bridges, but we know there is more to do,” said Infrastructure and Transportation Minister Steve Ashton.
During the 2013 construction season, the province will upgrade and repair more than 40 bridges in addition to a major emphasis on continuing to renew Manitoba’s core highway network with more than 1,160 kilometres scheduled for upgrades.
Near Winnipeg, those projects include: starting a multi-year project to upgrade the Perimeter Highway near Brady Road; rehabilitating the overpass on the Perimeter Highway at PTH 75; and rehabilitating the overpass structure on the Perimeter Highway at the Trans-Canada Highway East.
In Southern Manitoba, projects include: repaving the westbound lanes and shoulders on the Trans-Canada Highway from Portage la Prairie to PTH16; adding turning lanes and safety features to the intersection of PTH 3 and PTH 23; starting a multi-year project to significantly improve PTH 13 from Carman to Elm Creek; completing paving to PTH 16 from Binscarth to east of Foxwarren; and shoulder widening of the eastbound lanes of the Trans-Canada Highway from the Brokenhead River to east of the Trans-Canada Highway.
In Northern Manitoba the government will: continue major work to upgrading PR 373 north of Jenpeg; continue upgrading PR 280 in conjunction with Manitoba Hydro; widen the shoulder of PTH 6 north of Sasagiu Rapid; and pave PTH 10 south of PTH 60 to Overflowing River.
In Central Manitoba, projects include: starting a multi-year project involving intersection improvements and paving of PTH 59 from Brokenhead Ojibway First Nation to PTH 11; paving PTH 9 from PTH 4 to north of Clandeboye; intersection improvements on PTH 6 at Woodlands; and starting the next section of a multi-year project of grade widening, base work and paving of PTH 10 from PTH 25 to PTH 24.
Bridge projects include replacing the bridge on PR 227 over the Assiniboine River north of Portage la Prairie that was damaged during the 2011 flood; and major repairs to the bridge on PTH 23 over the Red River near Morris.
The province will also cost-share two major projects with the federal government, scheduled for summer 2013. Those projects are the completion of CentrePort Canada Way, a new roadway connecting CentrePoint to the national and international highway system; and intersection reconstruction of the Trans-Canada Highway through Headingley.
The proposed schedule for the 2013 construction season is being issued now so contractors can prepare to bid on projects for the next construction season. The document is available at The government of Manitoba website.
