15th Avenue Sewer Relining Update
Work on the 15th Avenue Sewer Relining project will be paused for a one-week period.
Crews have been working on the project 24 hours a day, seven days a week for nearly
six weeks and the pause will allow the contractor to provide a rest break to its employees.
To reduce the impact to residents, some of the current traffic restrictions will be removed
by Monday, July 29. The remaining traffic restrictions include:
- 15th Avenue between Toronto Street and Montreal Street will be closed to allow
storage of the relining equipment.
- The driving ramp on Broad Street will remain.
- No turns onto 15th Avenue from northbound Broad Street traffic.
- No westbound turns onto 15th Avenue from southbound Broad Street traffic.
Starting at 9 p.m. on Saturday, August 3, drivers may want to consider alternate routes as
crews prepare for the next section of work, which takes place between Hamilton Street
and Montreal Street.
To reduce the impact to drivers:
- A driving ramp will be installed on Toronto Street and 15th Avenue to
ensure north/southbound access for drivers. In addition, a pedestrian
ramp will also be installed.
- 15th Avenue will be restricted to one westbound lane between
Hamilton Street and Broad Street.
- 15th Avenue will be closed to eastbound traffic between Broad Street
and Montreal Street.
- There will be no access to 15th Avenue from the 2200 and 2300
blocks between Hamilton and Toronto Streets.
- Rose Street will be converted to a temporary two-way traffic between
College Avenue and 15th Avenue.
The City of Regina has worked with the Regina General Hospital to ensure access is
maintained during this project.
- Residents are asked to use the west entrance from 14th Avenue.
- Access to the north visitor parking lot will be accessible, however on-street parking
will be reduced.
These restrictions are expected to be in place for approximately three weeks.
The 15th Avenue sewer line provides wastewater services to approximately 50,000
downtown and east Regina residents. Through this major project, the City of Regina is
rehabilitating the sewer pipe by sealing a new liner inside the current sewer main. Work is
being done 24 hours a day to complete the project quickly to reduce impact on residents.
Once complete, the sewer pipe will be ready for service for another 50+ years.
Future traffic restrictions will be communicated as work progresses.
The City of Regina thanks residents for their understanding and patience. Slow down, plan
ahead and be safe. Workers and their families are relying on you.
