Victoria Avenue Beautification & Infrastructure Project
Starting the afternoon of Monday, June 1, the restrictions for the Victoria Avenue Beautification & Infrastructure Project will change. Drivers may want to consider alternate routes as the restriction moves to the north side of Victoria Avenue between Lorne Street and Hamilton Street. Traffic will remain restricted to one lane in each direction.
This part of the project is expected to be in place for five weeks, depending on weather or unforeseen circumstances.
Other important traffic and pedestrian information:
- Cornwall Street remains accessible for eastbound traffic on Victoria Avenue.
- Scarth Street between Victoria Avenue and 13th Avenue returns to one-way traffic with access to Victoria Avenue eastbound only.
- Scarth Street to 12th Avenue is not accessible from Victoria Avenue. Vehicles can access Scarth Street via the alley from Hamilton Street.
- Sidewalks are closed to pedestrians for safety in the construction zone. Pedestrians must cross at Cornwall Street or Hamilton Street.
- There is no on-street parking on Victoria Avenue in the construction zone and limited parking on side streets as these may become temporary two-way streets.
- Traffic lights, streetlights and parking meters will be removed with the plan to reinstall them as quickly as possible.
The schedule for this project aims to minimize impacts to downtown residents and businesses. Restrictions and closures will take place throughout the construction season for both traffic and pedestrians. Watch for signs and plan alternate routes using the Road Report.
The City of Regina thanks residents for their understanding and patience. Slow down and be safe. Workers and their families are relying on you.
