Latest Updates on 17th Avenue Construction

August 9, 2017 - Starting immediately, and continuing for approximately one month, the Route 6 bus detour is being revised to accommodate a road closure on 1 Street S.W. between 14 Avenue and 15 Avenue. See the map for more information.

August 3, 2017 - We’re making progress on the first three blocks of 17 Avenue. This week we’ll be adjusting our lane closures on Centre Street at 17 Avenue S.W. to allow one lane of traffic in each direction on Centre Street. Starting the weekend of August 4, 2017 we will be moving into the block between 1 Street and 2 Street S.W. The intersection of 2 Street S.W. and 17 Avenue will close to through traffic, but we’ll maintain local traffic and access to the businesses on this block, and make sure there is pedestrian access so people can get to where they need to go.

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.
