The City is apologizing over driver frustration, concerns and inconveniences due to Ring Road construction Wednesday.
It was especially frustrating in the city’s southeast end, considering there wasn’t accurate signage for some on-ramps.
We apologize and understand the driver frustration and confusion around the work happening on the Southeast leg of the Ring Road.
We are committed to doing a better job with signage and informing residents on major projects as the work progresses. #yqrtraffic pic.twitter.com/osZeuMPHsf

Norman Kyle with the City of Regina said the city received a handful of calls about these particular issues.
“There should have been signage to inform residents that the Arcola ramps were open again, as they’ve been closed for the past two weeks or so. Also, that the Assinboine ramps would be restricted.”
Kyle said even drivers were confused if they wanted to head north on the Ring Road.
“Once you got to Assinboine, you could only go north or south on the Ring Road. Though drivers looking to go north would have had to go south instead. With Wascana being closed as well, they would have to go all the way to Albert Street.”
The City noted there was also more than a few complaints through social media.
Horrible, horrible, horrible traffic congestion. Assiniboine Dr.East is closed at the ring road. #YQRTraffic Hundreds and hundreds of cars are trying to access and the congestion there.

Kyle said construction should be completed by July 13th on that particular project.
