REGINA – Construction has paused for the winter on the $25 million Highway 6 and Ring Road overpass project in Regina.
The project involves construction of a pair of new overpasses and associated works at the location of the existing two structures at Highway 6 and Ring Road, also referred to as the south end of Albert Street in Regina.
The new overpasses will each have a clearance height of 5.3 metres and will accommodate larger vehicles.
The current overpasses, which have 4.7 metres of clearance, were built in 1966 and are reaching the end of their service life. The new overpasses will each continue to have two lanes of traffic.
Construction on the project began in spring of 2023 with the new northbound overpass open to traffic in late October.
The new southbound overpass and the remainder of the projects are expected to be completed in 2024, with construction resuming next spring.
