2nd St S.W. Complete street project

Project overview

This summer, The City of Calgary will be doing work along 2nd Street S.W. from 10th Avenue to 26th Avenue. We are upgrading the existing shared driving and cycling lane to a painted dedicated bike lane and installing curb extensions to make it safer for people to cross the road. Some parking will be shifted to one side of the street (west side) to allow for smooth and predictable traffic flow.

This is being done to improve the walking and cycling experience, provide better access and connections to key destinations in this area, and connect to the existing cycle track and pathway system.

Road changes

  • Four to five curb extensions
  • Painted bike lanes along both sides of the road
  • Parking all moved to the west side of 2nd Street S.W.
  • Continue to have two driving lanes
  • New all-way stop at 2nd Street and 26th Avenue S.W.
