Construction pauses

In support of the Calgary Stampede, several City-led construction projects downtown and on major traffic routes are making sure Calgarians can get around during the festivities:

  • 4 Avenue Flyover: both lanes will reopen.
  • Crowchild Trail N.W.: all lanes will reopen.
  • Mission Bridge: two-way traffic will continue with one lane in each direction, and pedestrian and walking & wheeling access will remain open.
  • 17 Avenue S.E.: all lanes will be reopened between Deerfoot Trail and 19 St. S.E.
  • Bridgeland Main Streets: Reduced lanes will remain open along 1 Avenue N.E.
  • 10 street will be fully open while utilities projects pause.
