WINNIPEG – Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure announced its advertising schedule for the 2022-23 construction season at the Manitoba Heavy Construction Association’s awards breakfast and annual general meeting recently.
The three-year capital plan includes:
- The Winnipeg One Million Perimeter Highway Freeway Initiative, which will upgrade the Perimeter Highway to freeway standards;
- the Trade and Commerce Grid Strategy, which will expand the grid of highways that can support heavy commercial loading;
- the International Trade Hub, which plans to enhance the province’s transportation mobility and connectivity, ensure safety and reliability across the highway network, enable industry expansion that leverages Manitoba’s diverse economy, and build climate resiliency;
- the expansion of CentrePort Canada, North America’s largest tri-modal inland port and foreign trade zone;
- upgrades to the rail line to Churchill, to improve service to isolated communities; and
- the proposed Lake Manitoba and Lake St. Martin Outlet Channels Project, a large part of Manitoba’s long-term climate resiliency and flood mitigation plan, to provide improved flood protection for Lake Manitoba and Lake St. Martin.
The advertising schedule for 2022-23 construction, engineering service provider and material supply tenders is posted at www.gov.mb.ca/mit/contracts/index.html. An amended list with additional projects will be posted in mid-December after an upcoming byelection in Kirkfield Park.
