Project update - February 7, 2019:

Planning for upcoming construction season
Project scheduling discussions are currently underway with stakeholders and other project partners. Various construction sequence and timing options are being considered while also reviewing the impacts of the various upcoming 17 Avenue activities, including Lilac Festival, Calgary Marathon, Calgary Stampede, and a potential Calgary Flames playoff run. The project team is committed to delivering this complex project in a timely manner while balancing the residential and business community's needs. A preliminary project schedule will be available in 6-8 weeks.
ENMAX projects in the area
As part of the ongoing restoration and upgrade work underway on 17 Ave S.W., ENMAX is taking early opportunity, prior to the continuing utility and road restoration works commencing in the spring, to replace a major electrical vault between 2 Street S.W. and 4 Street S.W​. This work will start ​February 11 and continue for approximately five weeks. Other than some lane restrictions 17 Ave will remain open to two-way traffic. Pedestrian access will remain available along the existing sidewalk. Vehicle drivers should watch for barricades and lane restriction signage.
ENMAX is also undertaking another project, the Downtown Calgary Transmission Reinforcement Project, in close proximity to our work. More information regarding this project can be found here​.
Work completed so far
Not everyone knows what happens between the fences so we wanted to provide a snapshot of what has been completed so far. The 17 Avenue S.W. Reconstruction Project is providing new utility, road, and electrical infrastructure so that 17 Ave can continue to thrive for years to come. We are also investing in other pedestrian realm improvements like new sidewalks, streetlights, and new trees.
With the work over 65 per cent complete, this is a snapshot of what's been accomplished​.

We're really into 17 Ave. S.W.

We're rebuilding 17 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 14 Street S.W., in one of Calgary's most vibrant neighbourhoods to eat, shop, and do business. The result will be a new 17 Avenue that will serve people who live, work, play and travel in the area for decades to come.
