Regina's new football stadium is slowing coming together, but now there's a fast way to check on its progress.

The City of Regina has a webcam pointed at the site off Elphinstone St. in Evraz Place. You can check the live camera anytime here.

A time lapse video of the last few days shows earth being removed and equipment being moved around.

Construction is set to begin in earnest in the months ahead.

The $278-million open-air stadium will be the new home of the Saskatchewan Roughriders, starting in the 2017 season.

Soil being dug up in Regina is enough to fill more than 100 Olympic-size swimming pools. (Dean Gutheil/CBC)
