Brocor wins contract for Braden Road construction

The contract, part of the Oil and Gas Rural Road Improvement Program (OGRRIS), is for phase 3 of 3 that has seen the entirety of Braden Road get strengthened, widened, and seal coated over the last few years. While Brocor will be focusing on strengthening, widening, and seal coating the rest of the road, they will also be adding new lighting to the John Hart Highway/ Braden Road intersection, improving intersections 212, 214, and 216 along the Braden Road, and upgrading the drainage around the Barringham Bridge.

Local Minister Blair Lekstrom is excited to see development to an important road in the Peace.

“Braden Road is one of the most-travelled [roads] in our region. The improvements we’re doing here will help improve travel and safety for local residents and support increased industry investment and activity.”

Overall, the province has been busy when it comes to Peace Region roads, with this contract bringing the total money invested, since 2001, to 925 million dollars.

Construction on the Braden Road should start shortly, and be completed in approximately a year’s time.
