Three pedestrian bridges to be replaced in Regina by the end of May
Regina will invest $660,000 to replace three pedestrian bridges in 2018.
The City of Regina confirmed the three bridges being replaced are located over the storm channel south of Murphy Crescent, south of Ellison Crescent and at 6th Avenue North and Sheppard Street.
The funding for this improvement will come from the Bridge Infrastructure Renewal Program, which is in place to enhance public safety with regards to bridges.

Work will begin March 8 at the pedestrian bridges over the storm channel south of Murphy Crescent and south of Ellison Crescent.
The new pedestrian bridges will be built directly beside the existing ones, allowing them to stay open to pedestrians during construction. The existing bridges will be removed once the new bridges are complete.
Construction on the third pedestrian bridge at 6th Avenue North and Sheppard Street is expected to begin in April, however, as space constraints require the new bridge to be rebuilt in the same location pedestrians will be asked to detour around this site and to watch for signs indicating where to detour.
The work on all three bridges is expected to be completed by the end of May.
