City Improving Pedestrian Safety At Albert Street and South Service Roads
The City of Regina is increasing safety for pedestrians and motorists at the intersection of Albert Street and the South Service roads with the installation of a new pedestrian corridor later this month.
A full pedestrian corridor includes illuminated crosswalk signs, lighting to improve pedestrian visibility to drivers, as well as pedestrian poles and push buttons on both sides of the street. A similar corridor was recently installed on Wascana Parkway near 23rd Avenue.
Installation will begin later this month and is anticipated to be complete in early spring factoring in potential delays due to weather. The work will be completed in phases, which helps keep traffic moving in the area with minimal disruption to the travelling public.
The City of Regina continues to improve pedestrian safety throughout our community through annual capital investments in new pedestrian infrastructure. Upgrade locations are primarily determined based on analysis that considers the number of pedestrians and vehicles at the intersection, as well as other factors such as intersection geometry, vehicular speeds and age of pedestrians using the intersection.
