Highway 5 currently serves as the primary access to and from Humboldt and as the city’s main economic corridor.  Like all the other cities in Saskatchewan, Humboldt is experience significant growth.  In order to ensure highway infrastructure continues to support the local economy and can handle traffic safely and efficiently, the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure is partnering with the city of Humboldt and the RM of Humboldt to study a future truck bypass route. 

An engineering consultant has been hired to outline the need, location and considerations affecting the timing of construction of a new bypass route.  When first constructed, the bypass would initially function as a truck route, moving heavy truck traffic out of the city.  The review will look at things like future growth and development, environmental and heritage impacts, traffic safety, landowner impacts and connectivity with the rest of the regional road network.  The review will include opportunities for public input and will take place over the coming months.

Actual construction of the bypass will depend on future budgets and the province’s other infrastructure priorities, but would not likely occur for a number of years.
