26 Avenue S.W. improvements

This summer work will begin on 26 Avenue S.W. between Sarcee Trail and 37 Street S.W. Based on feedback, traffic data, and more, we have identified three intersections to be modernized:

  • 51 Street S.W.
  • 49 Street S.W.
  • Kelwood Drive S.W.

Project update - May 2022

Work is scheduled to begin in Q3 2022 and will not require the closure of 26 Avenue S.W. to vehicles or impede property access for residents. Pedestrian detours will be in place.

Upgrades will include:

  • installing concrete curb extensions
  • upgrading wheelchair ramps
  • filling existing sidewalk gaps to increase comfort and connectivity

About the project

We are making changes to 26 Avenue S.W. between Sarcee Trail and 14 Street S.W. to improve public spaces and enhance connections for people walking, wheeling, and taking transit. 26 Avenue S.W. connects eight communities, including nine schools and over 50 businesses. 

Your input

The priority intersections were selected using a combination of public feedback, existing traffic volumes, and more. The locations were chosen to improve safe travel to and from schools, increase access to community destinations, and resolve accessibility constraints.

Next steps

Work is scheduled to begin in Q3 2022, and will not require the full closure of the corridor or impede property access for residents. Pedestrian detours will be in place during construction. We will be in touch when timelines are confirmed to ensure all residents are aware and informed.

In 2023, we are planning additional intersection and wheeling lane improvements along 26 Avenue S.W., between 20 and 37 Streets S.W., as funding allows.
