HIGHWAY 11/HIGHWAY 16 INTERCHANGE FUNCTIONAL PLAN
Location: Saskatoon, SK
Project Type: Transportation
About This Project
ISL developed both a long-term interchange plan to ensure that this important corridor will once again be a free-flow facility, as well as a staging plan to alleviate operational problems in the short-term. With constrained space due to the close proximity of adjacent interchanges in all directions and neighbouring communities and residential areas along the road right-of-way, typical interchange solutions were not possible. ISL led a multidisciplinary team (i.e., transportation, structural, municipal, surveying, geotechnical, environmental, community engagement, graphic design, utility coordination and historical resources) and thoroughly evaluated 11 interchange configurations that considered present and future traffic volumes, mobility, noise and long-term flexibility.
To ensure that the community and future decision makers understand what was being proposed for this complex interchange, the City extended the project scope by enlisting ISL’s 3D visualization team to prepare a 3D model, fly-through video and “you drive” station that allow people to experience the interchange.
