53 Street N.W. Improvements

2017 pathway construction

In summer 2016, construction was completed on the majority of 53 Street N.W. Bikeway Review improvements, including:

  • An off-street pathway connection and bicycle ramps at the Crowchild Trail roundabout
  • Improved pathway connections at Valencia Road N.W. and Valhalla Circle N.W.
  • A new, formalized parking lane and new painted bicycle lane buffers between Varsity Drive N.W. and Valiant Drive N.W.
  • Improved delineation for the parking lane and bike lane on 40 Avenue N.W., between 53 Street and 52 Street N.W.

Pathway connection at Varsity Estates Park

A pathway connection at Varsity Estates Park was planned for 2016 as a part of these improvements, but due to utility work in the area, construction was postponed until 2017.

This summer and fall, the new pathway will be built on the east side of 53 Street N.W. to improve connectivity between Varsity Estates Park and Varsity Estates Drive / 53 Street N.W.

At the same time, a stop sign will be added to the east side of the intersection to provide a safe connection for people biking through the intersection.


Construction will begin early September and is expected to be complete by October 2017.

Temporary sidewalk and pathway closures may be required during this work. The City will make every effort to minimize disruptions.
