Project vision: 17 Ave S.W. construction

We're investing in 17 Ave., for now and for the future. Rebuilding the 30 year old road and the upgrading the 100 year old utilities now will make sure the area can continue to grow for years to come.

The effort now will make sure the area can continue to grow for years to come.

Key areas of focus are:

  • Rebuilding the road, including a new road design that's safer and more predictable, based on an In-Service Road Safety Review
  • Improving crosswalks and intersections for those on foot, including curb extensions on side streets
  • Upgrading water and sanitary utilities for current and future development
  • Improving sidewalks- new sidewalks and repairs, burying utility lines, LED lighting, sitting areas and new trees
  • Upgrading telecommunications, power and gas utilities

Paving the way for a better 17 Avenue S.

The City is investing in the future of 17 Avenue between Macleod Trail and 14 Street S.W. We're upgrading the utilities, rebuilding the road and improving the area for pedestrians so 17 Avenue can continue to be a vibrant, great space for everyone to enjoy.
