Boychuk Drive and Highway 16 Interchange
Construction at the site of a new interchange at Boychuk Drive and Highway 16 has been underway since April of 2017. The interchange was made possible by the governments of Canada and Saskatchewan who are each contributing up to $10,960,885 through the Provincial-Territorial Infrastructure Component – National and Regional Projects. The Boychuk Drive and Highway 16 interchange is scheduled to open in the summer of 2019.
Please remember the speed limit is 60km/h through the construction zone until the new interchange is complete. Drivers may also want to consider alternate routes to access surrounding neighbourhoods.
The new interchange will...
- ease traffic congestion, especially during morning and afternoon rush hour
- reduce accidents
- include a new eastbound left-turn loop to replace the eastbound left turn lane from Highway 16 onto Boychuk Drive
- include accessible pedestrian and cyclist pathways, allowing for safe movement across the roadways
- include the construction and reconstruction of sound walls on the north side of Highway 16, west of Boychuk Drive
- include new street lighting
