The city is offering an apology for a traffic headache in southeast Regina Wednesday morning.
Overnight, crews reopened the ramps at Arcola Avenue that had been closed due to construction for the last two weeks.
Construction was moved south to Assiniboine Avenue and the two ramps there were closed instead.
But there was no signage indicating drivers of the change leading to major congestion and delays.
“Mistakes happen but we will be reviewing our processes to ensure that we don’t have misses like this, especially with roads that have high-traffic volumes. We want to make sure the residents are well-informed and can plan alternate routes in advance,” said Norm Kyle, director of roadways and transportation.
Extra signage is already in place following the mistake Wednesday morning.
The construction on the Ring Road is a multi-million dollar project that will see work done on various ramps in the southeast section. Kyle is asking drivers to be patient as the work is set to continue through the fall.
The single lane traffic that exists currently between Albert Street and Victoria Avenue should return to normal by July 13.
