As long as it doesn't end with "Drive" or "Trail". Or "Road" for that matter.

Combine all the crappy generic names the city/developers go with nowadays with the absurd long memorial names that are also popular for no good reason, and throw in some patronage to the Hills also for no reason.
Don't forget Wascana and Capital ha ha

I am betting they won't even name it, and it will just be called the South Bypass.

Nope, . . . the Roland J. Groome Airport suits our airport just fine.

Or they just call it the Transcanada Highway (sort of how they did with bypasses around towns elsewhere on the 1 and 11).

Victoria and Albert are still the Trans-Canada Highway. You have a business route and a bypass. Call them 1A or 1B, instead of calling both the business route and the existing bypass 1, as they are now.

Except for the part on the west side. That will need a new name.

1b - reflects the cost.

seriously, I do like some reference to the riders like Migs mentioned or maybe the Greenway. We already have the green mile down Albert St.
I hope it doesn't end up being called "the other ring road". The two bridges in Halifax have elaborate formal names but are more commonly known as "the new one" and "the old one" or is it "this one" and "the other one"?

Well, since the premise of the Golden Mile mall was based on the fact that when it was completed in 1960, the distance to Highway #1 (to the south) was roughly one mile. (Nothing in between yet.)

The south portion of this new super Ring Road ought to be called: Three More Golden Miles. Lol!!!

I think it's more likely they will name it Thunderchild Way

Really? The Riders are an integral part of the culture in Regina.

Yes, dead serious.

As a Rider fan I do not find the over the over the top fanaticism of the Riders the be all and end all of what Regina, or Saskatchewan is. When I was on TSN last year as an athlete for a triathlon I was asked to chant "Go Riders Go!" I asked the producers, "Why? That has nothing to do with Triathlon." They said, "You are from Regina right?" OH PLEASE!

It's almost as disgusting to me as Tim Horton's marketing themselves as a "Canadian institution" or if you don't drink Tim Horton's then you aren't Canadian. When abroad, I despise when non Canadian's associate me with Tim Horton's, just because I'm Canadian. The RoughRiders do not make Saskatchewan, Saskatchewan. Even though they are a "big deal" here.

/end rant - Now back to the Thunderchild Bypass

I think we can all agree that we will probably all refer to it as:
"thank gawd they finally built it".
