One of the many signs of spring in the Queen City is the sight of city crews on the roads repairing pot holes around the city.
Pothole repair has been underway throughout the winter, but City of Regina crews are now out fixing potholes on a more consistent basis.
Director of Roadways and Transportation Norman Kyle says it’s only a matter of time before the hot-asphalt will be able to be used to repair the streets.
“For the next week and a half or so, they’ll be continuing to patch potholes with cold-mix asphalt,” Kyle says. “Our asphalt plant should be fired up with hot asphalt the 30th of April here, and that’s when they’ll be able to do more permanent repairs.”
Kyle says if people are worried about the potholes on their commute, there are people to notify for that.
“We would recommend that if (people) have a concern, that they contact service Regina at (306) 777-7000, or online at regina.ca, and that will let our staff know where to go inspect, and get things put on our work list.”
High priority roads will be taken care of first according to Kyle, which means residential neighborhoods may not be seen until well into the summer months.
