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

Project update - November 19, 2019

Extension now open

Crews have completed all major road and utility work on Symons Valley Parkway N.W. and the connection is now open. An accessible, multi-use pathway has also opened on the north side of Symons Valley Parkway.

Additional pathway and sidewalk connections along the south side of Symons Valley Parkway and 37 St. N.W. are scheduled to open in spring 2020.

 

The City began construction to extend Symons Valley Parkway (128 Avenue 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.

  • Six lanes on Symons Valley Parkway (128 Avenue N.W.) between 37 Street N.W. and Symons Valley Road

  • 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.
