The Ministry of Highways has decided on where two highway overpasses will be built for Warman and Martensville.
The Warman overpass calls for moving the main access point north. The new Highway 11 interchange will intersect with Highway 305 near the Legends Golf Course. “This will ensure an opportunity for future road network expansion while accommodating traffic during construction,” said the ministry on its website.

The main access into Martensville will remain at its current location with the overpass connecting Highway 12 with Main Street and Centennial Drive.

The functional plans for both projects will be unveiled at open houses on Oct. 26 in Martensville and Oct. 27 in Warman.
The province is now in the process of picking the builder.
A Request for Qualifications (RFQ) was released last month. The ministry will shortlist three proponents who will then proceed to the proposal stage currently planned for late this year.
The interchanges will be build using a design and build model, in which the design and construction services are contracted by a single entity.
Ministry spokesperson Doug Wakabayashi said due to that process and feedback from the public the interchange configurations may change a bit.
Cost and construction timelines have yet to be set.
