City of Regina to spend $100,000 on Mosaic Stadium repairs

The City of Regina is looking to replace the metal expansion joint covers at new Mosaic stadium just a few years after it first opened.

The expansion joints are rubber gaps that allow for expansion and contraction within the concourse during hot and cold cycles throughout the year. The metal covers are to keep the walking area flat, but maintenance crews have started noticing some lifting up and even coming loose.

The city says these covers were the standard for stadiums across North America when Mosaic Stadium first opened.

The cost of the project is in the $100,000 range, and will come out of the city’s Mosaic Stadium operating and maintenance budget. The repairs should be done in time for the 2020 Riders season.
