Regina, Saskatchewan – Construction is complete and traffic is flowing on a new $29-million interchange in southwest Regina at Highway 1 and Lewvan Drive.
“A long-term safety concern for motorists at this busy intersection has now been addressed,” said Jim Reiter, Saskatchewan’s Highways and Infrastructure Minister. “As commercial and residential development at this location continues to expand and traffic volumes continue to increase, we now have the infrastructure in place to provide safer and more efficient travel for motorists.”
The project was jointly funded by the provincial and federal governments. Completed work includes the construction and paving of overpass embankments and ramps, the bridge structure, and service roads.
A temporary paved surface has been laid on the ramps and bridge for winter, and additional paving will be done next spring to complete the project. Permanent guard rails, overhead signage and lighting will be installed over the next month.
