     Sask DOH (Department of Highways) and Transportation is undertaking new highways in bridges around the province.  Most Notable is the P.A. (Prince Albert) Bridge study for Twinning of the Diefenbaker Bridge, as well as the West Regina bypass, and the St Louis Bridge across the Noth Saskatchewan River which carries Hwy 2.

     DOH is also twinning Hwy 11 north of Saskatoon to P.A. as well.  This is much needed as this route has limited passing zones, heavy truck, and communter traffic between the cities.  Prince Albert is a heavy forsterty and mining community. As well as becoming a Bedroom community of Saskatoon.

I drove that route last summer.  Lots of progress on the twinning.  I was pleased that most of the newly-twinned segments were posted with a 110 km/h speed limit, even with occasional at-grade crossings.

Less welcome was the lousy condition of the primary highways in some northwestern parts of the province's populated areas, like around the junction of routes 21 (unpaved) and 55 (heavily torn up due to construction).  Route signage was poor, and I accidentally drove past the turnoff for route 21 into Alberta (much better pavement) before I realized my error.

Sask DOH has on its web site a study for a South Regina Bypass.  I have a link to the posting: http://www.highways.gov.sk.ca/SouthReginaBypass  This one looks interesting.  I know for years Regina has been looking for an alternate route for TCH-1 (Victoria Ave) heading east from Ring Road due to the build up of big box retail along this corridor.  The study looks as though it will bypass Victoria Ave as well as the Southern portion of Ring Road as well.   The last time I was through Regina, most of the cities development both industrial and residential, were in the North West and North East of the city.  This plan indicates residential development to the south of Ring Road.

I this on SkyscraperPage Forum, http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=215168, it looks like Sask DOH is planning to twin Hwys 6 & 39 between Regina and Estevan.  Here's some of the links:

Has there been any movement on the Hwy 1 portion of the Regina By-pass?

It looks like the western by-pass road is going to be built in the next few years, but nothing is underway yet for the TCH portion itself.  Is that indeed the case?
