City Prepared for Icy Conditions
Severe winds with a mix of freezing rain and snowfall are expected in Regina starting on Wednesday morning before tapering off on Thursday afternoon. The City’s primary focus is to provide ice control on busy roads and intersections as well as monitor road sections prone to blowing snow.
During a snow and freezing rain event, ice control helps provide traction to improve driving conditions. Sander trucks will continuously monitor and apply sand/salt to the Category 1-4 road network which includes major roadways, hospital and transit routes, commercial areas and areas near schools, as needed.
Residents are encouraged to take extra caution when driving. Slow down and be safe. Plan your route by knowing the road categories. Visit Regina.ca/winter.
In the event snowfall exceeded five centimetres, a systematic plow would begin on Category 1 and 2 roads including expressways, arterials and hospital routes.
It’s important to keep your sidewalks safe. The City offers free sand for public use to keep your sidewalks and driveways safe. Residents are encouraged to bring their own container and fill it up with sand to use on their sidewalks and driveways. Find sandbox locations at Regina.ca/winter.
During a significant ice event, City services may be delayed. Recycling/garbage may be picked up later in the day and transit users should check Transit Live for any changes.
