A Busy First Month Of Operation For The Regina Bypass

Released on December 4, 2019

Province Benefits From Largest Transportation Infrastructure Project In Saskatchewan's History

After one month of operation, an average of 5,630 vehicles – including 1,230 trucks - use the Regina Bypass daily.

“We are encouraged to see many people benefitting from the bypass in the first weeks of full operation,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Greg Ottenbreit said.  “The improved safety and efficiency of the project for people travelling in the Regina area is great, and we are excited to see even more traffic use the route as people familiarize themselves with the new infrastructure.”

Each transport truck that chooses the bypass is a heavy vehicle that previously drove through Regina city streets.  It is estimated the bypass will reduce fuel consumption by nearly 300 million litres over 30 years, resulting in a 1.5 per cent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

“The opening of the Regina bypass is the perfect way to close out our government’s previous growth plan, and pave the way toward our next growth plan for 2030,” Ottenbreit said.

The Regina Bypass officially opened October 29, after four years of construction.

The bypass is also delivering measurable safety benefits for the thousands of commuters who come to Regina every day to work, shop and play.  Keeping truck traffic off city streets is making Regina’s east end safer, more livable and more drivable.

The Government of Saskatchewan has invested more than $9 billion in transportation infrastructure since 2008.
