“Construction season is here,” Highways Minister Fred Bradshaw said in a release. “Spring and summer 2021 will be one of the largest construction seasons the province has seen in a while. With nearly $440 million in work resulting from this tender, motorists will see over 820 km of roadway improvements across the province. Drivers may experience some delays with roadworks and I ask that they slow down, plan ahead and be patient. ”
