I did a road trip this week from Calgary to Saskatoon and Regina and back.  Can anyone tell me why there is a gap in the twinning of SK 11 at Chamberlain?

I guess it might be related to the business owners of that area who don't want to be bypassed.

Meanwhile, there's another study then I saw from an article published in May about the railroad crossings on Circle Drive in northeast Regina.

Upgrading Highway 11 to a four lane divided, 110 km/h road would also be expensive. A typical Highway 11 ROW of 60 - 80 meters doesn't fit between the village and the railroad tracks, plus you need a service road for Chamberlain access. That would likely require Highway 11 to be rerouted on a new alignment, preferrably with bridges across the railroad. That's a lot of money...

In addition, most of the 90 people in Chamberlain are probably employed by businesses that cater to passing traffic. It could be the same reason why the sections of I-10 and I-40 around smaller towns in the southwest were the last to be constructed.
