Regina city crews continue to monitor and take care of the extremely icy roads and public sidewalks Tuesday.
Late Tuesday afternoon more rain fell in the queen city than all of July, 2.8 mm was recorded at the University of Regina.
Sander trucks will be continuously watching category 1,2,3 and 4 roads, sand and salt is also being applied to sidewalks belonging to the city.
Norman Kyle, Director of Roadways and Transportation for the city said residents should also be sanding their driveways and the sidewalk in front of their homes.
“We would recommend they go to the sand bin locations we have around the city, we have nine different locations where people can get free sand to use on their sidewalks and driveways,” Kyle said.
Kyle added while there is no bylaw saying residents must clean their sidewalks, it’s something they need to consider doing after a significant weather event such as this.
Motorists are also encouraged to continue to drive with caution as the lasting cold weather will only keep the ice around longer.

- Northgate Mall: 7th Avenue North and Lorne Street
- Jack Hamilton Arena: 1010 McCarthy Boulevard
- Albert Scott Community Centre: 1264 Athol Street
