Areas in Bellevue will undergo culvert clearing and replacement work this construction season as the Provincial Government continues an aggressive infrastructure investment strategy.
“This repair and replacement work will address areas damaged by Hurricane Igor,” said the Honourable Tom Hedderson, Minister of Transportation and Works. “It is important to maintain a high level of quality in our roadwork and upon completion this work will ensure our transportation infrastructure is strengthened in this region.”
The tender provides for the removal of debris from the Come by Chance River Bridge inlet area on the Trans Canada Highway and at a number of culverts on Route 210. The design and installation of a new culvert at North Harbour on Route 210-11 is also included, as well as the replacement of culverts at two sections of Route 210, Swift Current.
“Culverts are an important part of the road and highway system and the work in this tender will ensure these areas in our region are repaired and maintained,” said Calvin Peach, MHA for Bellevue. “This investment in our roadways shows our government’s commitment to safe and secure highway infrastructure.”
