Highway 1 Indian Head Study

The Ministry of Highways is studying Highways 1 and 56 in Indian Head to determine the configuration of a future interchange and alignment.


1. Study Background

The Ministry of Highways is studying Highways 1 and 56 in Indian Head.

The purpose is to determine the configuration of a future interchange at Highways 1 and 56 and the alignment of Highway 56.

This study is about identifying land to be preserved for the future. No date has been set for any construction of potential improvements.


2. Past Public Engagement

A new option of a diamond interchange was presented at the current location in October 2023. The previous round of public engagement presented a recommended option for the Highway 1 and Highway 56 interchange, which was a diamond interchange to the west of the existing intersection.


3. Study Options

New Option – Diamond Interchange at Existing Location (Highway 1 over Highway 56)

The new option is a diamond interchange at the existing intersection location; however, Highway 1 will go up and over Highway 56. All other options considered involved Highway 56 going up and over Highway 1.


Previously Recommended Option – Diamond Interchange West of Existing Location

The previously recommended option was a diamond interchange west of the existing Highways 1 and 56 intersection location. This option involves Highway 56 going up and over Highway 1.


4. Next Steps

  • Evaluate Survey Feedback
  • Virtual Public Engagement to Present Recommended Option
  • Produce Final Report
