Road work in Regina continues to try the patience of motorists as projects, which were due to wrap up weeks ago, stretch into the fall.

"Overall, our construction projects are about two to three weeks behind," Ted Duce, the city's construction co-ordinator, told CBC News on Tuesday.

"We've had some equipment breakdowns [and] some material supply issues. So it's just been a summer of nightmares."

One of the most congested areas of the city is the Albert Street in the downtown area, a key north-south artery. On Tuesday, work was being done to prepare the surface for a fresh layer of asphalt.

Duce says the work should be done by the end of October.
