Calling it “a massive achievement”, the first step in the $1.8 billion dollar Regina bypass project is complete.
The first section of the bypass runs from Balgonie to Highway 33, and also includes new overpasses at Balgonie, White City and Tower Road. The new Pilot Butte interchange is slated for completion in 2018 with remaining construction to be done in 2019.
”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 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.
