Connecting Our Communities: the Comparative Costs of Highway Construction
January 22, 2019 | Winter Lipscombe
Have you ever driven down a highway riddled with potholes and wondered how it got to this state or why it has not been fixed? The short answer to these questions is the high price tag attached to building and maintaining highways. Northern Policy Institute provides insight on this topic with their latest commentary, Connecting Our Communities: the Comparative Costs of Highway Construction by Winter Lipscombe.
The commentary examines the per-kilometre construction costs of highways across the northern and southern regions of Manitoba and Ontario and what factors may affect those costs. The author investigates whether remoteness and length in kilometres of a highway project affects the overall cost of that project, and the implications of those costs.
