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:

Construction update

  • Between Macleod Tr. and 1 St SE: Due to the complexity of building new manholes and concrete ducts onsite, in addition to working around live cables, work is taking longer than expected. We've decreased the construction zone to the east and west ends and opened on-street parking where there’s space. We’re currently working on possible solutions to wrap up this work as quickly as possible.
  • Between 1 St SE and Centre St: crews are scheduled to finish the utilities during the week of Dec 15, due to continuing work on existing manholes.
  • Between Centre St and 1 St SW: manhole work continues in a smaller work area until the week of Dec 5. On-street parking will open when space is available.
  • Between 4 St and 5 St SW: work is finished on the east end and is expected to finish on the west end the week of Nov. 28.

Upcoming intersection work

Over the next four to six weekends, crews will work through various intersections, between Macleod Trail and 4 Street S.W. This work is necessary to connect the new ENMAX cable to the existing cable network that runs through the intersections. We expect to leave intersections open during this time, but crews will need to close some lanes and limit left-turns to make room for the work.

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.
