Symons Valley Parkway (128 Ave N.W.) extension

Project update - May, 2019

The contractor has finished removing the topsoil and excavation work has begun to build the roadway embankment. This phase of work is expected to last until approximately mid-June. A temporary powerline has been installed to support the utility relocation process. Permanent power line installation will begin in June, along with other underground utility work.


The City will begin construction to extend Symons Valley Parkway (128 Ave N.W.) between 37 Street N.W. and Symons Valley Road in spring 2019. This extension will provide an important missing link for residents in Northwest Calgary, making it easier to travel and reduce congestion in the area.

Project details

The project will include:

  • Six lanes on Symons Valley Parkway (128 Ave N.W.) between 37 Street N.W. and Symons Valley Road
  • Changes and upgrades to the intersections at 37 Street N.W. and Symons Valley Road including new traffic signals and through and turning lanes,
  • A new sidewalk on the south side of the new Symons Valley Parkway (128 Ave N.W.) and a multi-use pathway on the north side to improve mobility for all modes of transportation in the area.
