Partnership paves way for road construction
The Government of Alberta has made a partnership arrangement with the Sturgeon Lake Cree Nation for the construction of new highway lanes, two pedestrian underpasses, and bridges and culverts over Goose Creek and Pelican Creek through the Sturgeon Lake Cree Nation, west of Valleyview.
As part of the agreement, the government of Alberta signed a $78 million contract with Petrowest Construction LP.
The new 20-kilometre, four-lane stretch will open to traffic by the fall of 2014 and completes twinning of the CANAMEX Trade Corridor between Grande Prairie and the Alberta-Montana border at Coutts.
“We want to thank transportation ministers and regional directors, past and present and Premier Alison Redford for providing us this enormous opportunity to complete this project. It’s been a long time coming and we look forward to starting and completing the project,” said Sturgeon Lake Cree Nation Chief Richard Kappo.
