Phase One of the Regina Bypass Complete

Released on October 30, 2017

The first phase of the Regina Bypass construction between Balgonie and Highway 33 is now complete, marking a major milestone for the project.  The bypass will improve safety, divert large truck traffic around Regina and help eliminate traffic congestion.

“This is a great example of how governments and the private sector can successfully work together to deliver the public infrastructure Canadians need,” said Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities.  “The on-time opening of this phase of the Regina Bypass is a significant milestone for this important project.”

Phase one of the project includes new overpasses at Balgonie, White City and Tower Road.  It also includes new south and east service roads from Highway 33 to Pilot Butte, north service roads from Pilot Butte to Balgonie and south service roads from Pilot Butte to Balgonie.  The Pilot Butte interchange will be complete in 2018.

”The Regina Bypass is the largest infrastructure project in our province’s history and is representative of our government’s growth plan, and an opportunity to grow our economy,” Highways and Infrastructure David Marit said.  “The Bypass will increase safety in and around the Regina area, while helping to improve the flow of traffic for commuters and commercial truckers.  We thank the communities in the area for their on-going patience.”

The Regina Bypass Design Builders will complete the remaining construction for the bypass in 2019.  This includes the south route from Highway 33 to Highway 1 west including new interchanges at Highway 6 and 1.  It also includes the west route from Highway 1 west to Highway 11 north, which includes overpasses at Hill Avenue, Dewdney Avenue, 9th Avenue and Highway 11.

“A tremendous amount of work has been carried out over the past two years in partnership with the Government of Saskatchewan and the Project stakeholders,” Regina Bypass Partners CEO Guillaume Dubois said.  “Safety is always our priority and it is a very proud day as we officially open the first phase of the Regina Bypass, which will significantly improve the safety of residents and their families on Highway 1 east.”

The Regina Bypass is the largest transportation infrastructure project in the province’s history.  The Government of Canada, through PPP Canada, is investing up to $200 million in the project.
