What is the status of the 17 Avenue S.W. construction project now?

The City hosted a third workshop with the 17 Avenue business stakeholder group on Tuesday, March 21. At this workshop The City presented two refined construction schedule options to the group for feedback and discussion.

Based on what we heard at this session construction will begin at Macleod Trail the week of April 17, 2017 (weather dependent). It is expected that construction will be completed up to 2 Street S.W. this year with additional blocks being considered after consultation with business owners between 2 Street S.W. and 6 Street S.W. More details will be provided on the 2017 construction schedule soon and will be part of the information presented at open houses April 5 -8.
