The Alberta government announcing a few highway projects receiving funding in Budget 2019.

It includes $4.4-billion to repair and build highways across the province but there is no money set aside for any twinning of Highway 3.

Here in Lethbridge, construction of a new pedestrian bridge on Scenic Drive over Highway 3 is on the books though.

Mayor Chris Spearman says the new bridge will help complete the pedestrian-bike route.

The provincial government has also earmarked money for the design phase of some wildlife mitigation projects in the Lundbreck area.
