The City of Regina is continuing work on clearing snow, as crews move into residential streets.
City crews have been working around the clock to clear streets that are higher priority, and will be working to clear residential streets during the normal work day in order to ensure cars are off the streets when they plow.
Director of Roadways and Transportation Norman Kyle says crews have made lots of progress.
“We will be starting plowing of residential streets effective (Thursday) morning, we’ve gotten through all of the category one and category two roads, we`re finishing up the category three (Wednesday), we’ll continue to work on the three and four, but we will be going into residential streets (Thursday.”
Kyle says 60% of Regina streets fall under category five, which involves residential streets. While the plow will start Thursday it won’t end until the 19th when those who live in areas like Dieppe Place, Regent Park South, and Douglas Park are slated to see their streets get plowed.
Kyle later added residential road clearing will work much like the snow route program; where if there is a car on the street, it will be plowed around.
