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

  • 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 on 17 Avenue S.

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.

Although we’ll try as hard as we can to stick with the schedule, they may change a little based on weather or crew availability. We’re moving into Calgary’s colder months now so all dates are subject to change.

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.
