GoA Investing Nearly $2B in Infrastructure Projects, Expected To Create Thousands of Jobs

The provincial government is allocating $1.9 billion in multiple infrastructure projects.

The GoA announced on Thursday they will use the funds to resurface roads, repair bridges, restore schools, and fill potholes.

They expect this will lead to thousands of jobs across the province.

“By doubling our capital maintenance and renewal project funds, we will deliver much-needed improvements to important assets, keep companies operating and most importantly, keep Albertans working,” said Premier Jason Kenney, in a release.

Around $410 million will be used on transportation and $60 million on operating, which covers work repairing potholes.

The province says there are 95 construction projects currently being worked on, while another 114 are in the planning and design phase.

“As the weather improves and buildings are empty, now is the perfect time for us to act,” added Kenney.

More information can be found on the GoA’s website.
