17 Avenue S.W. Construction


Project update - June 20, 2019

17 Avenue and 14 Street intersection closure and street parking restrictions
There will be two planned closures at the intersection of 14 Street S.W. and 17 Avenue S.W., to allow for the replacement of utilities and traffic lights as part of this project:
  • Sunday, June 23rd from 4 a.m. until 4 p.m.
  • Friday, June 28th from 8 p.m. until 5 a.m. Tuesday, July 2nd.
Detours will be in place for Calgary Transit, motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.
No parking signs will be posted in advance of the closure and residents are asked to park in alternate locations which will be posted at impacted buildings and businesses.
Calgary Police Mobile Community Outreach Police Station on 17 Avenue S.W.
The mobile police station​ has hit the streets of downtown Calgary to increase accessibility, community engagement and public safety, while reducing social disorder.
The new Mobile Community Outreach Police Station is a mobile reporting station that can be deployed anywhere in the city based on the needs of our community, and will be operational Monday to Thursday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. starting Monday, June 24.
It will be located at Tomkins Park on 17 Avenue S.W. for an initial two weeks.

2019 Construction Schedule
Work continues between 9 and 10A Street
After some unforeseen delays due to unknown underground conditions, we have reopened the intersection of 17 Avenue and 9 Street S.W. and are proceeding with the remaining utility and roadwork in the east closure area. We are anticipating opening the 9 to10 Street section by Stampede. Once this segment and the intersection of 12 Street and 17 Avenue S.W. are reopened, we will close the remaining section between 10A and 12 Street. Note that this schedule is subject to weather and other potential impacts.
12 to 14 Street SW now well underway
Our second work crew has been proceeding with the 12 to 14 Street sections and is making good progress. Stay tuned for further updates as construction in this area continues.

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.
