5 street intersection work
Over the next week, there will be intermittent lane closures while crews work to complete some residual work in the intersection. Traffic flow will be maintained at all times but motorists are reminded to watch for detour and alternate signage routes. Pedestrian access will be minimally impacted during these closures.

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.
