$8 Million Investment on 11th Avenue Traffic Advisory – Broad Street to Hamilton Street
Starting Monday, May 8, a four-year construction project will begin in the heart of downtown to revitalize 11th Avenue from Broad Street to Albert Street. This project includes upgrades to the roadway, streetscape, sidewalks and underground infrastructure, as well as new lighting, traffic signals, pedestrian improvements and new transit shelters. This work will contribute to revitalizing the City Centre as we prepare for growth in our city and work to attract more people to the downtown.
Work will take place in phases from May to October each year from 2023-2026, starting at Broad Street and moving west approximately two blocks at a time. The City is working closely with utility companies, such as SaskPower and SaskTel, to coordinate their utility work occurring simultaneously to help reduce impacts to residents, drivers and businesses.
11th Avenue between Broad Street and Hamilton Street will be closed to traffic for the duration of the project this season. Work is expected to take six months to complete, weather dependent. Impacted side streets will become temporary two-ways during this time. Once the work is completed for the year, 11th Avenue will be re-open to traffic and the impacted side streets will return to one-ways.
The goal is to maintain access to businesses at all times, while also ensuring public safety in the area. Ample parking is still available in the downtown outside of construction zones.
To keep Transit moving, bus stops will be temporarily re-located during the summer months over the next four years. From May 7 through October, all transit stops on 11th Avenue between Broad Street and Albert Street will be relocated to Victoria Avenue and Lorne Street adjacent to Victoria Park. See attached map.
Transit riders are encouraged to check TransitLive.com for the most up-to-date information on routes, stops and times.

The City of Regina thanks residents for their understanding and patience and reminds everyone to slow down in construction zones to ensure everyone arrives home safely.
