The Regina Bypass is the largest construction project in Saskatchewan's history and its single largest job creator.

Its two purposes:

  1. Safety.  Highway 1 east of Regina was seeing 100 collisions per year.  New overpasses for Pilot Butte, White City, and Balgonie are the long-term safety solution those communities deserve.

  2. Growth.  Saskatchewan has a landlocked trade economy.  We need good highway connections to get by.  The Regina Bypass gives us faster, safer access along two of our most important trade routes: Highway 1 east-west, and Highway 6 south to the United States.  21,000 vehicles are expected to use the bypass each day.

Construction cost: 

Three projects, at $400 million each, were combined into the Regina Bypass P3.  Construction costs today are in line with that estimate at $1.2 billion.  The remainder covers maintenance, snow clearing, engineering advisors, and other parts of the project budget.
