Highway Name Changes At The Regina Bypass

Released on October 10, 2019

While contractors are putting the finishing touches on the Regina Bypass, some name changes are in the works for new highway infrastructure near the City of Regina.

The final phase of the bypass project continues on time and on budget and is scheduled to open at the end of the month.  This includes the route from Highway 1 West to Highway 11 North, with overpasses at Hill Avenue, Dewdney Avenue, 9th Avenue and Highway 11.  This section of highway will be known as Highway 11.  It will extend from the current Highway 11 in the north to the interchange at Highway 1 west of Regina.

The south route from Highway 1, west of the city, will include new interchanges at Highway 6 and Highway 33.  This will be known as the new Trans-Canada Highway or Highway 1.

“The new bypass will significantly improve safety and reduce traffic congestion around the City of Regina,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Greg Ottenbreit said.  “In preparation, a few minor changes have been made to the names of Highways near Regina.”

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.
