Project update - June 14, 2018:

Intersection construction at 5 Street S.W.
Last night, crews reopened southbound access at the intersection of 5 Street and 17 Avenue S.W. with the exception of a few intermittent lane closures over the next week. Traffic flow will be maintained while crews complete this work.
Lane closures on 4 Street S.W.
Starting Monday, June 18, 4 Street S.W. will be down a single lane in each direction between 15 Avenue S.W. and 18 Avenue S.W. from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. daily until Thursday, June 21. Motorists are reminded to watch for detour signage. Pedestrian access along 17 avenue will be minimally impacted by these lane restrictions.

14 & 15 Avenue S.W. one-way detour extension
Based on community feedback, we will be delaying extending the one-way detours on 14 and 15 Avenues from 8 Street to 11 Street S.W. This change will now take place the week of July 16, 2018. Notification will be provided to area residents closer to that date to remind them of the upcoming changes.

Revised construction schedule
Due to a later than expected start date (late spring snow and overnight freezing weather) we will complete up to 7 Street S.W. in advance of Stampede (July 5), and will continue west from 7 Street S.W. in September to 9 Street S.W. 17 Avenue will be open from July 5 until September 4.

We're really into 17th Ave.

We're rebuilding 17th Avenue. Make sure to keep updated on the work, as we replace underground utilities and rebuild the road. We'll show you the best way to your destination on the Avenue no matter how you choose to get here. Here you'll be able to see all the ways to access businesses, shops, restaurants and parking in and around the construction zone.
The construction is making its way west, from Macleod Trail to 14th Street S.W., in one of Calgary's most vibrant neighbourhoods to eat, shop, and do business. The result will be a new 17th Avenue that will serve people who live, work, play and travel in the area for decades to come.
We've put together a short video that explains where we are with construction on 17th Ave S.W. You can view this update video on YouTube​.
