LETHBRIDGE, AB – A number of highway and bridge projects will be taking place across southern Alberta in coming months.

On Friday, the province announced $3 billion over three years for things like fixing potholes, resurfacing roads, bridge repairs, and upgrades to a number of health and education buildings.

Some of the highway projects in this region include money for repaving work along parts of both Highway 3 and Highway 4 as well as rehabilitation of the Highway 25 bridge deck over Highway 3, just to name a few.

Alberta Transportation Minister, Ric McIver says priority is to create thousands of jobs now by fixing potholes and bridges and roads so Albertans can travel safer and so we can get our goods to market more efficiently. “Extending the life of infrastructure reduces replacement costs in the future. Budget 2021 makes sure Albertans can continue to be proud of their highways.”
