New Interchanges and Bypasses in MB / SK
I can think of such a long list of needed interchanges and bypasses throughout these two provinces, it just makes me want to yell "federal stimulus money." Such as:
Lewvan Drive Interchange, Regina ( U / C)
TCH / 16 Intersection: Yes, its getting an interchange! Eliminate one traffic light in the middle of nowhere!
Interchanges in Brandon, MB (it is simply ridiculous... the two signalized interchanges there are busy enough to warrant some interchanges to keep the TCH flowing, and would improve safety too.
Interchange at Elie MB. Yes... I think a good rule for Hwy 75 and the TCH is that if an at-grade intersection warrants a traffic light, it should be immediately upgraded to an interchange.
Perimeter highway / Hwy 59 interchange (FINALLY U/C???)
Dugald Road and Peremeter... the road splits for a future interchange structure, and they're waiting for a new bridge over the floodway first... why?
Moosemin SK (spelling?), needed 4-lane bypass of the town --> So it is finished. I haven't been that way in a while.
Virden (4-Lane bypass)
Headingley (long 4-lane bypass, hook up with the new CentrePort road)
St. Nortbert (4-lane bypass)
I am aware of the Centreport Initiative, and I know that the city is preparing to extend Kenaston Blvd to the Peremeter Highway, but no interchange is planned for the intersection with the Peremeter highway. Why not??? Is this not where the St. Norbert Bypass of Highway 75 would connect to the Peremeter? Would it not make sense to build the interchange and have it ready for the bypass?
Removal of the Waverley Street at-grade interesection will follow, and then all you'd really need is interchanges at Hwy 3 and St. Mary's and you'd have a free-flow perimeter (light free at least) along the southern route. Throw in frontage roads, and you could have a proper freeway.
These all seem like logical improvements to address, especially if this CentrePort initiative is going to go anywhere.
Have I missed any other really BAD and obvious locations that should be grade-seperated, or by-passed?
