Latest Updates on 17th Avenue Construction

September 15, 2017 – Crews are about to move into the last block for the construction season this year between 4 Street and 5 Street S.W.

It’s about time!

After thirty years, we’re reconstructing 17 Avenue S.W. And our plans are going to make it awesome for all of us, for decades to come. The construction will be between Macleod Trail S.E. and 14 Street S.W. to improve sidewalks, road design and underground utilities.

17 Ave is one of Calgary’s most vibrant neighbourhoods to shop, visit and do business. Don’t let construction bum you out, we have plan to ease the pain.
