Construction update; utility work moves one block west

  • As part of the continuing shallow utility work on 17 Avenue, southbound 5 Street S.W. will be closed at 17 Avenue this weekend from 7 a.m. on Saturday, February 18 until 7 p.m. in Monday, February 20. This closure is necessary to connect the new ENMAX cable to the existing cable network that runs through the intersections. Local access to the back lane between 15 Avenue S.W. and 17 Avenue S.W. will remain open.
  • Between 5 St and 6 St SW, work is on schedule to be completed by Feb. 19, including intersection work at 5 St. One eastbound and one westbound traffic lane will remain open.
  • 17 Ave SW, between 6 St and College Lane, will be reduced to one eastbound and one westbound traffic lane, from Monday, Feb. 6, to the end of February. The space is required for utility work.

Intersection work on 17 Avenue S.

Through to March, crews will work through various intersections, between Macleod Trail and 8 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 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.
