Highway 6 and 39 Corridor Improvements

The Highway 6 and 39 Corridor Improvements Project is proposed to include various safety and capacity improvements on the corridor between Regina and the North Portal US border crossing southeast of Estevan.

The project includes:

  • 12 sets of passing lanes
  • Twinning short portions of the highway south of Regina and north of Milestone.
  • Repairing over 70 kilometres of pavement.
  • Improving intersections, highway entrances and exits.

The project is expected to have major benefits, such as:

  • Creating good quality jobs during construction.
  • Helping the flow of highway traffic by reducing travel time.
  • Improving the movement of goods to market.
  • Supporting growth in mining, agriculture, and oil and gas production.

This project includes various intersection improvements, shoulder widening, 35 km of resurfacing, and the addition of 5 sets of passing lanes.

The federal government has committed to funding half of the project, up to $53 million, through the National Trade Corridors Fund.

Contractor
The contract was awarded to Coco Group o/a Langenburg Redi-Mix in September 2019. The Design Builder will undertake environmental surveys, topographical surveys, hydraulic surveys, utility coordination, and detailed design work prior to construction, which is expected to begin in 2020 and be completed in 2021.

Public Engagement
In early June 2019, our team began reaching out to key stakeholders in the area, ensuring that communication with those impacted occurs early in the project and clear lines of communication are formed. A Public Information Session was held October 29th. The session focused on the section of Highway 39 between Weyburn and Milestone. View the boards.
