$842 million road and infrastructure construction budget: Not all of it will be spent

The Saskatchewan government says it has completed a massive vol-ume of road and infrastructure con-struction this year.

“As you know, the construction sea-son in Saskatchewan is pretty short be-cause of our weather. And, we were blessed with a very good fall,” high-ways and infrastructure minister Nancy Heppner said.

She said the ministry had an $842 million budget but the final calculation on how much was spent will be deter-mined once the work ends – however it will be less than what was budgeted.

“We won’t know exactly how much was spent until all the contracts have wrapped up and we know exactly what was completed. Every year, there are some projects that don’t get done …there’s delays in those,” she said.
