The City of Regina is investing $660,000 to replace three pedestrian bridges in 2018.
These pedestrian bridges are located over the storm channel south of Murphy Crescent, south of Ellison Crescent, and at 6th Avenue North and Sheppard Street.
The funding for this improvement comes from the Bridge Infrastructure Renewal Program, which is in place to enhance public safety with regards to bridges.
Work has already started at the pedestrian bridges over the storm channel south of Murphy Crescent and south of Ellison Crescent. The new bridges will be built directly beside the existing bridges, allowing them to stay open to pedestrians during construction. Once the new bridges are completed, the existing ones will be removed.
The third pedestrian bridge at 6th Avenue North and Sheppard Street is anticipated to begin construction in April. Pedestrians will be asked to detour around the site, as space constraints require the new bridge to be rebuilt in same location. Pedestrians should watch for signs to indicate where to detour.
Work on all three bridges is expected to be completed by the end of May.
