Regina drivers will want to know about a road construction project beginning Thursday on Albert Street between Victoria Avenue and Saskatchewan Drive.
The project will result in improved drainage, extending the lifecycle of the infrastructure and creating a smoother driving experience. Work will include replacing sidewalks, pedestrian ramps, curbs and gutters, as well as resurfacing the roadway. A new centre median will be installed between 11th Avenue and 12th Avenue to improve safety by reducing the risk of right-angle collisions that occur with mid-block left turns.
Work is anticipated to be completed in early August, pending weather or other unforeseen circumstances
As one of Regina’s major roadways, Albert Street typically sees upwards of 50,000 vehicles per day. To help maintain traffic flow during construction, Albert Street will remain restricted to one lane in both directions for as much of the project as possible, but you may want to consider alternate routes.
