REGINA SOUTH BYPASS ROUTE SELECTED

The route for the future bypass south of Regina, from Highway 33 to Highway 1 west of the city, has been selected and approved by the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure.

“The South Bypass will respond to the tremendous growth Regina and Saskatchewan is seeing, position the region for more growth in future years and be an important part of the broader provincial and national transportation systems,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Don McMorris said.

The South Bypass will greatly alleviate bottleneck traffic on Victoria Avenue East and allow for shippers to travel around the city without stopping.  The approved route is about 4.8 km south of the Albert Street overpass.  It will connect to Highway 1 near Pinkie Road at the West Regina Bypass and, on the east side, to the future bypass along Tower Road between Highways 1 and 33.

The route was selected through a location planning study overseen by a joint Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure, city of Regina and RM of Sherwood steering committee.  The study process included extensive consultation, including two public open houses, a group meeting with landowners and businesses within the study area and individual meetings with landowners directly impacted by the selected route.

The ministry will now undertake a functional planning study for the South Bypass.  This phase of the Bypass’s planning determines items like access to the bypass, the configuration of overpasses and service road requirements.

The South Bypass is one of a number of major, multi-year projects that are being planned or built through this year’s $576 million highways and infrastructure budget.
