8 Street S.W. Corridor Improvement Plan

About the plan

The 8 Street master plan establishes a strong connection along the high-use corridor between the Bow River waterfront and 17 Avenue S.W. uptown area. The plan provides a vision that addresses area needs and enhances the pedestrian experience by focusing on improving areas such as sidewalks, street crossings and urban design, and lays the foundation for growing 8 Street S.W. as a liveable, caring and thriving place.

The master plan is supported and guided by the Council-approved Centre City Plan (2007)​​ and the Centre City Mobility Plan (2010).
