17 Avenue S.W. Construction


Project update - August 1, 2019

Schedule update
After some unforeseen delays due to weather and unknown underground conditions, work along 17 Avenue S.W. is making good progress. We will be opening 17 Ave between 12 St and 14 St S.W. this weekend. While small pieces of work will remain in that stretch, the road will be open to traffic, and parking restored.
The next section of road that will be open to traffic, weather permitting, will be between 10 Street and 10A Street.
August long weekend closures
Over the Heritage Day long weekend, crews will be working to upgrade aging utilities underneath Macleod Trail S.E. Macleod Trail will be reduced to one northbound lane between 17 Avenue and 14 Avenue S.E. This closure will begin at 8 p.m. Friday, August 2nd and the road will reopen by 5 a.m. Tuesday, August 6.

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.
