17 Ave SW construction - Getting around

We're paving the way for a better 17 Avenue and it doesn't matter if you drive, walk or bike, there will always be a way to keep visiting the area. During construction up to three to four blocks of 17 Avenue S., plus minor intersections, will be closed to vehicle traffic and detours will be put in place to keep traffic moving through the area.​

And don't worry, we haven't forgotten about parking. There is, and will continue t​o be, a lot of street, parking lot and parkade parking - all within a 2 to 5 minute walk of 17 Avenue. Check out our map to see how you can get to your favourite spots on the avenue, and where to park once you get down here.

Construction detour and parking map

Construction on 17 Avenue South is wrapping up for the winter. We're working with stakeholders to develop the schedule for next construction season, and our goal is to have the 2018 construction schedule prepared and publicly available as soon as possible.

Just a reminder that 14 and 15 Avenues will remain one way streets between 1 Street S.E. and 8 Street S.W. over the winter.


Detouring around construction

14 and 15 avenues have been switched to one-way traffic between Macleod Trail and 8 Street S.W. so traffic can detour around 17 Avenue for two to three blocks at a time during construction. These detours on any given block will only be in place for three to four months.
