17 Ave SW construction - Getting around

You can still get around 17 Ave. easily – we promise – let us show you how!

Come on over!
17 Ave will be fully accessible for people in cars and on foot throughout construction. Although there will be some block-by-block construction, we’re working hard to make sure you can get to your favourite spots. We’ll be updating this site regularly, so you know you’re getting the most up-to-date information.

We won’t lie, there will be some interruptions:

ENMAX- traffic lanes and on-street parking begins to re-open

  • Between Macleod Tr. and 1 St SE, during the week of Oct. 10, on-street parking and travel lanes will open where there’s space. Manhole work will continue in a small work area until week of Oct. 24.
  • Between 1 St SE and Centre St, utility work is scheduled to be completed at end of October.
  • Between Centre St and 1 SW, work is underway until end of October.
  • Between 2 St and 4 St SW, on-street parking is expected to re-open on both sides of the street during the week of Oct. 10.

TELUS- work is nearing completion

Between 1 St and 2 St SW, work is underway and on schedule to be completed during the week of Oct. 10.

Weekend traffic impacts- 2 St. SW and Macleod Tr., Oct. 14-16

2 St. SW will be closed to traffic between 15 Ave and 17 Ave, from Friday, Oct. 14, at 7 a.m., to Sunday, Oct. 16, at 9 a.m. During the same time, 17 Ave SW will be reduced to one lane in each direct at 2 St SW. Traffic will be detoured around the closure. One sidewalk will remain open on 2 St SW, between 15 Ave and 17 Ave.

Southbound Macleod Tr. will be reduced to two lanes between 15 Ave and 17 Ave, from Saturday, Oct. 15, at 7 a.m., until Sunday, Oct. 16, at 7 p.m.

Don’t worry, we’ll only be working on the north side of 17 Ave., and – as much as possible – only on one block at a time. We’re doing whatever we can to make sure 17 Ave. stays bustling throughout this process.
