17 Avenue S.W. Construction


Project update - August 28, 2019

17 Avenue S.W. to open to traffic in Mid-September
Road and utility work between Macleod Trail S.E. and 14 Street S.W. is expected to be complete by mid-September. Crews will be removing construction fencing, reinstating parking, and opening the road to traffic between 9a and 12 Street S.W.
Concrete sidewalk and streetscape work will continue until the end of the construction season (approx. mid-October) and will be focused on the major street corners.
Sidewalk work to continue in 2021
In order to give businesses and residents in the area some reprieve after three years of construction and disruption, the balance of the sidewalk and streetscape construction has been deferred by 18 months until 2021 and will be completed in conjunction with the top-lift of asphalt road paving during the 2021 construction season.
Temporary detours
The one-ways along 14th and 15th Avenue and two-way along 16th Avenue will remain in their current configurations until the spring of 2020 while the City undertakes a detailed traffic analysis.

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.
