The City of Regina is laying out its plan for which residential streets will be repaired next year.
It’s part of the Residential Road Renewal Program in 2016. A total of $8.9 million will be spent on 60 projects, equaling 20.8 kilometres of road.
This is the program the dedicated one per cent of the tax increase goes towards. In 2015, 87 projects were completed totaling 19.2 km, worth $7.5 million.
The program will run through to 2019, designed to address roads before they reach “poor” condition. The ultimate goal is to decelerate the deterioration of local roads and sidewalks in “fair”, “good” and “excellent” condition to ensure they don’t crumble. Fixing roads in “poor” condition is typically costly.
The program allocates 65 per cent of its budget to “fair” roads, 25 per cent to “poor” roads and the remaining 10 per cent to roads in “good” condition.
