Public Works and Government Services Canada has awarded five contracts for a total of $53 million that will have work done on the Alaska Highway. Three of the five projects have already started with the other two to begin next April.
The projects underway include realignment of kilometres 736-742 of the highway, asphalt concrete paving of kilometres 458-485, and microsurfacing of an unspecified stretch of the highway for 100 kilometres. Those projects are set to be completed in October of this year.
Next April work will begin on kilometres 743-750 of the highway. That project is expected to finish in October of next year. Work will also start on kilometres 133-598 and will include a variety of tasks including spot patching, sweeping, mowing, and sanding. The project is expected to have a duration of 26 months.
