It was a good summer for construction in the City of Regina.
Over 88-million-dollars was spent fixing and developing city infrastructure this past year.
Mayor Michael Fougere, said the bulk of the money was spent on one significant capital project.
“About 50-million dollars or the bulk of the construction that we did this summer were on water and wastewater drainage projects, and that includes the Arcola detention pond project, as well as the 5th Avenue North storm water sewer being constructed with about 400 meters of more pipes,” Fougere said.
Fougere said the other 38-million dollars was spent on maintaining various types of infrastructure, such as roads, bridges and storm drain repair.
“We did rehabilitation of both the Ring Road overpass’ at Victoria Avenue, which was completed ahead of schedule and the Wascana Parkway overpass was just competed a few weeks ago. Paving work and major artillery’s included Pasqua, Albert and Broad Streets,” Fougere said.
There were also almost 350 water main breaks this year, costing the city almost three-million dollars in repairs.
