Work will begin on April 27th and is expected to last until mid-September. The tentative schedule will have night closure from 7 PM to 6 AM Victora Ave. More detailed detour information will be provided closer to the date that construction begins.
Starting Thursday, May 25 through Friday, June 2, Ring Road under Wascana Parkway will be closed nightly between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. as crews begin demolition of the overpass. One direction of traffic on Ring Road will be closed at a time. During night closures, traffic will be detoured up the ramp and over. These closures are required to keep motorists safe. Watch for signage and further updates indicating which direction is impacted.Additional nightly closures will be required during other phases of the work which will be announced as dates become known.The City of Regina thanks citizens for their continued understanding and patience while this important infrastructure work is being completed during Regina’s short construction period.
