You may see some parking restrictions around Regina’s General Hospital for the next six to eight weeks.
City crews will be pruning elm trees in the area during that time.
The trees, which are some of Regina’s oldest, around 100 years, were last pruned in 2006.
Russell Eirich the city’s Manager of Forestry, Pest Control and Horticulture, said signs will be posted telling residents when to expect parking restrictions in certain areas.
“We’re trying to do this on a block-by-block basis, we are signing off each block as to what we’re doing and we are putting the dates on the signage to show where we are, by Wednesday we expect that we’ll be on the 21 block,” Eirich said.
Over 1,000 trees will be pruned between Broad Street and Winnipeg Street and Victoria to College Avenue with crews working from 7:30 a.m. each morning until 5:00 p.m. in the afternoon.
