12 Avenue South Improvements

 

We're making changes to 12 Avenue South to make travelling better for all modes of transportation.

Key focus areas

12 Avenue South is a critical corridor for Calgarians who live, work and commute downtown. Construction will consist of new road markings and painted lines, updated signal work and the extension of the 12 Avenue cycle track.

Upgrades to 12 Avenue South will:

  • Improve travel time for drivers by providing three uninterrupted driving lanes for morning rush-hour.
  • Extend the dedicated lane for people cycling along 12 Avenue South.

Work on 12 Avenue South will be done in three phases:

​Phase​ Scope Timeline
