Event Centre traffic and construction impacts

​​​​​​​​

January 2024 marks the start of enabling works and various site preparation activities to ensure the site is ready for construction later this year.

5 Street S.E. Reconfiguration

5 Street S.E. (between 14 Avenue S.E. and 12 Avenue S.E.) will be relocated approximately a half a block to the east, and become 5A Street S.E. This move is necessary to make the space and room necessary for the full 10-acre Event Centre Block.

The week of January 15, underground service work and installation of a temporary construction roadway began in preparation to begin construction and shift 5 Street later in the year.

Construction of the new 5A Street is expected to take approximately six months to complete. 5 Street will remain open to traffic until the new 5A Street is completed and opened.
