Drivers will be seeing a lot of orange on Regina’s Victoria Avenue between Park Street and Arcola Avenue starting Monday and ending around the beginning of October.
Lane restrictions and limited access to businesses in the area are something to watch out for as city crews work on replacing concrete.
The city’s Director of Roadways and Transportation, Norman Kyle, recommends using either Dewdney or Arcola as an alternative route.
Kyle said there will likely be one lane on either side for the majority of the project, and then once paving begins there will be two-way traffic on one side.
Businesses on the stretch include A&W, Flavours of India and Dad’s Organic Market could be affected with Kyle indicating access to their parking lots will be limited.
“If there’s two driveways to a strip mall, we’ll only close one at a time or if there’s only one access they’ll do half of it and then do the other half,” he said.
They’re fixing medians, sidewalks, curbs and potholes.
“When I drive out there I notice motorists tend to shift away from where the actual lane is just to avoid the potholes,” Kyle said.
He added everything from Prince of Wales to Arcola will all soon be re-paved and hopefully lasting the next 10 to 15 years.
