REGINA — The City of Regina recently announced it has completed a multi-year, $6 million investment on the Victoria Avenue Infrastructure Improvement and Beautification Project in the city’s downtown.
The project began with one phase between Albert Street and Cornwall Street and finished this year with a second phase between Cornwall Street and Broad Street.
“Victoria Avenue is more than just an important high-traffic road. It is a key entrance to our downtown and a gateway for residents and visitors to enjoy their downtown experience, whether going to work, shopping or the great events hosted in Victoria Park and City Square Plaza,” Mayor Michael Fougere said in a statement.
“By improving this road now, we are ensuring it stays in good, safe condition for another 25 years.”
Work for the project included repairs to catch basins and sewer accesses, intersection improvements with enlarged curbs for pedestrian safety, streetscape improvements, including new boulevards and wider sidewalks on the north side, new black powder coated traffic signal poles and enhanced street lighting.
A portion of the project was funded by the Federal Gas Tax Fund program in Saskatchewan.
