Regina Bypass Thread

Hello All,

Instead of filling the Regina Construction Page with information / pictures of the WRB that I have been adding. I figured I would add this thread to provide a place to talk about the Bypasses under construction / being planned around Regina.

FICTIONAL MIXED WITH CONFIRMED

Great to see the thread started. The south/SE portion has to be included too. Sounds like there could actually be a development on it sooner than later:

That looks fantastic. Use your powers to make it happen!

What is the road and interchange just north of the #1? Was that always part of the plans?
Would any of this work take precedent over the South East bypass?

Rottie, I plan to do the whole bypass (NE section as well) So I will post all my fly-throughs and pictures here.

Also there are some hypothetical interchanges (such as the one you mention) that I will be putting in. Also I think these two will be concurrent work.

I like your ideas North Regina Boy. But can we keep a clear delineation between what's real and what's just fantasy?

Excellent. Look forward to seeing the whole ring around the city and hopefully more of this gets underway sooner rather than later. Great to hear about an announcement on the South east bypass as posted above. A massive amount of roadwork in the years ahead.

Yes I will do both a real and fictional model. These will be stated at the top of each drawing going forward. Also I will update the cover picture with that disclaimer.

The west bypass from #1 to Dewdney is under construction as we speak - the interchange at #1 has been open for months now.

To clarify only phase 1 is open, the large high speed ramps are not built yet.

Re: White City - I agree completely. All you have to do is take a drive out on East #1 and see the queue of people trying to get on #1 from White City - it will give you white knuckles. It is a big safety concern and they need at bare minimum the Pilot Butte overpass and likely the overpass on the far east White City either at the same time or one year later at most.

By lights I assume you mean street / visibility type lights as opposed to traffic control lights?

Yes I think that's what he means. And I could see some at the main interchanges and through the White City area. However for most of it I don't think it'll be lit.
