REGINA – The City of Regina has announced it will spend $112.6 million in the coming constructions season on transportation, water, wastewater and drainage projects.
“To invest over $100 million is not only essential to improving infrastructure throughout our community, it also creates jobs that contribute to our economic recovery as we look forward to coming out of this pandemic,” said Mayor Sandra Masters in a press release. “This year’s construction season improves essential infrastructure while addressing city priorities.”
The majority of the construction projects are set to begin in early May, while some multi-year projects have already broken ground, including the North Central Drainage and McCarthy Infrastructure Improvement projects.
“The health and safety of our employees, crews and community are top priority for the City of Regina,” said Kim Onrait, executive director of citizen services. “We are committed to delivering another successful construction season with continued focus on safety in 2021. To do so, we are working closely with contractors and crews to ensure effective protocols are in place so that work can be carried out in a safe and timely fashion.”
