The Ministry commissioned numerous studies, including 24 separate public consultation events to determine the route for the bypass. These studies took into account factors like impacts on people, safety, road functionality, existing land uses, presence of utilities, cost, growth projections and other factors.
In finalizing the route, we’ve given the highest consideration to access to adjacent development, minimizing impact on landowners and achieving a safe and functional road.
The City of Regina, White City, Balgonie, Pilot Butte and the RMs of Sherwood and Edenwold were directly involved in the planning process and have endorsed the route.
Numerous public open houses have been held in conjunction with the various studies. Businesses and other stakeholders have been consulted and we’ve had face-to-face meetings with most of the directly impacted landowners. Learn more below.
“We found that the Ministry actively sought input from the public and stakeholders throughout the process. It has held numerous public open houses (e.g., November 28,2013 South Bypass open house) or required its consultants to obtain public and stakeholder input through stakeholder meetings and public open houses." - Provincial Auditor
