MHCA, province working to see 2022 tenders awarded

The MHCA has followed up and is working with Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure to see the full 2022 construction program tendered and awarded expeditiously.

The MHCA has now completed a review of the tenders advertised to date by MTI (on Merx) for the structures and water infrastructure programs this year. The review, passed along this week to the department, indicates challenges in seeing the full program out, awarded and projects completed in 2022.

The department has committed to working toward the goal, noting that weather and flooding this spring have made for difficult conditions and pressures upon department resources.

“We have good conversations with senior MTI administration and we are grateful the department works with the association and industry to meet our common goals,” MHCA President Chris Lorenc said.

Ultimately, the goal is better service for Manitobans, and the impact of a cold winter and this spring’s near record rainfall shows there is considerable work to be done to maintain roads and to ensure the integrity of culverts and bridges, Lorenc noted.

“We will keep industry updated as to the status of our talks with the province.”
