Victoria Avenue – Albert Street to Cornwall Street
Victoria Avenue Infrastructure and Beautification Project continues to progress with additional work taking place over the next week.
Work has started on the medians that will change traffic flow and expand the one lane in each direction traffic restriction to Cornwall Street for one week. In addition, Lorne Street will be a right-turn only at Victoria Avenue to go eastbound.
On Friday, September 27, crews will move to the next phase of concrete work on the north side of Victoria Avenue between Albert Street and Smith Street, as well as the sidewalks at 1971 Albert Street. This work is expected to be complete in three weeks, depending on weather or unforeseen circumstances.
Traffic restrictions will continue as one lane in each direction between Albert Street and Cornwall Street. Traffic and pedestrian impacts will include:
- McIntyre Street will be a temporary two-way road between Victoria Avenue and 12th Avenue.
- McIntyre Street traffic will be right turn only at Victoria Avenue to go eastbound.
- Pedestrians will have access along the south side of Victoria Avenue. The north side remains closed between Albert Street and just east of McIntyre Street.
- Access to businesses on the north side of Victoria Avenue is available via McIntyre Street.
Upon completion of the median work, paving will take place between Cornwall Street and Smith Street. Traffic will be restricted to one lane in each direction. Paving will be complete in six days.
Victoria Avenue is an important road in our community and work continues on the $6 million, multi-year infrastructure improvement and beautification project between Albert Street and Broad Street. This project will see improvements to intersections including larger curbs for pedestrian safety, new boulevards, updated traffic signals and enhanced street lighting. By properly maintaining this road now, we ensure it stays in good, safe condition for another 25 years.
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.
