Replacement of a pair of bridges on the TransCanada just west of Rush Lake is nearing completion. 

The proactive project began in April and is expected to finish before winter rolls in, with work on the westbound bridge already wrapped up. 

Senior Communications Consultant with the Saskatchewan Ministry of Highways, Steve Shaheen, noted that while the construction zone is short, there are multiple restrictions.  

“People should remember that it is a construction zone and so please still slow down,” he said. “Expect delays. And there is a limit on the width of the oversized loads of 4.3 meters.” 

Carried out by Moosomin’s Harbuilt Construction, the complete replacement of the bridges will cost the province around $6.3 million.
