Project update

Macleod Trail to Centre Street

On July 17, after Stampede is over, crews will continue working on 17 Avenue between Macleod Trail and Centre Street. Work will continue to repair and rebuild the road on the north side of the street. This construction will require three lanes closed on 17 Avenue. One eastbound lane will remain open to accommodate business access.

Once crews have completed the road work on the north side of the street in late July, public realm improvements, including new sidewalks, street lighting and tress will begin. This will take approximately 3-4 weeks. Once this work is complete crews begin road work and public realm improvements on the south side of the street.

Centre Street to 1 Street S.W.

Starting July 17, crews will move construction west one block between Centre Street and 1 Street S.W. This road requires a full road closure, which means 17 Avenue will be completely closed to traffic at 1 Street S.W. This closure will be in place for approximately three months, while crews replace water and sanitary lines and repair the road. Vehicles and Calgary Transit bus routes #6 and #7 will be detoured onto 14 and 15 Avenues.
