Through collaboration, sewer renewal and bridge rehabilitation occurred simultaneously in 2021 and road renewal will take place in 2022. By combining these significant and complex projects, the City realizes substantial cost benefits and efficiencies, as well as the overall duration is reduced.
- Extended the life of the sewer main that serves 60 per cent of Regina residents by 50 years.
- Strengthened piers to accommodate current traffic loads and increased durability to prolong the life of the concrete deck.
- Upgraded bridge railings and guardrails to improve safety, as well as extended overall service life of the bridge.
- Repair and renew sidewalks to accommodate multi-use pathway users and improve the pedestrian experience.
- Resurface the road to provide a smoother commute (Dewdney Avenue to Brunskill Place).
- Starting the week of June 16, crews will begin work on road paving and renewing sidewalks. This work will be completed in phases:
- Phase one – Thursday, June 16, preparation work for construction will start with restrictions in the curb lanes. Starting on Monday, June 20, northbound lanes will be closed and two-way traffic will be maintained in the southbound lanes. This phase is expected to take about four to five weeks.
- Phase two - crews will move into the southbound lane, and two-way traffic will be maintained in the northbound lane. This work is expected to take another four to five weeks.
*All work is dependent on weather and unforeseen circumstances.
