Construction is now underway on the first Saskatchewan public-private partnership (PPP) transportation project. Work has started on the White City overpass, a major part of the Regina Bypass. The link will connect Highway 48 to Highway 1 at White City and will be completed in 2017.
SaskLink Global Transportation Partners won the bypass project contract in 2015.
The overall Regina Bypass will have 12 overpasses, including White City, Balgonie and the Pilot Butte access. Initial work on the White City overpass will focus on the foundation for the pier that will be built in the Highway 1 median to support the bridge deck. Work on grading the bridge abutments is expected to begin soon in the new year.
