Regina's historic Travellers Building is coming down in the centre of the city.

Traffic restrictions are currently in place around the area of the building, at 1833 Broad St., as crew members remove debris from the site of the ongoing demolition.

The building was constructed in 1929 and was ravaged by a fire on March 8.

Due to the fire, the building's heritage status was called into question and Regina's planning commission called on council to repeal it.

Council is expected to decide on this May 29, but demolition was approved in advance due to the condition of the site.
