The Saskatchewan Government says that 60.6 million dollar overpass project at Martensville and Warman is still on schedule.
With approximately 14,400 vehicles per day on Highway 12, the new interchange at Martensville will disperse traffic along Main Street and Centennial Drive.
Project Manager Andrew Schumaker said motorists were allowed to use the southbound lane of highway 12 under the Martensville overpass on Tuesday. Schumaker added there will be a series of other temporary accesses on paved roads around both overpasses until the project is completed next summer.
Martensville Mayor Kent Muench reminds motorists that Main Street will be closed for a month to allow for the completion of the east abutment which will provide access to the new bridge. That closure is slated for just after the August long weekend.
In Warman, the Highway 11/305 overpass will offer a safe route in and out of the community. With 17,700 vehicles per day, it will also mean an opportunity for future road network expansion.
