Highway 11/Highway 16 Interchange Functional Plan
The City of Saskatoon is embarking on an important journey in developing an interchange at the junction of Highway 11 and 16 in the south portion Saskatoon. This project perfectly matches the ideals that Saskatoon is looking for in 21st Century solutions that will create a highly desirable and sustainable city. This project will have a dynamic impact on the quality of life for the community, as this interchange provides an important link to Regina via Highway 11 and an east-west connection to Winnipeg and Edmonton on Highway 16 and Circle Drive in the North. The existing cloverleaf interchange was constructed in the 1960s and requires upgrading to reflect increased traffic numbers unanticipated at that time. This functional planning study, commissioned by the City of Saskatoon, looks at various interchange configurations to resolve the present day problems of weaving length deficiencies, the close proximity of adjacent interchanges at Victor, Boychuk, Taylor and Preston, and an inadequate bridge clearance. A total of ten Interchange configurations that consider the present and future traffic volumes, mobility, noise and long term flexibility were evaluated and the advantages and disadvantages for each were examined. The detailed functional plan for the selected option is now being completed.
