17 Avenue S.W. Construction

17 Ave S.W. Construction

Project update - December 20, 2019

17 Avenue S.W. open to traffic
Road and utility work between Macleod Trail S.E. and 14 Street S.W. has been fully completed. Concrete sidewalk (major street corners) and streetscape work has been completed for 2019. Minor deficiency cleanup and some ENMAX work will be undertaken in Spring 2020 and some very minimal short duration road disruptions are anticipated with this work.
Sidewalk work to continue in 2021
In order to give businesses and residents in the area some reprieve after three years of construction and disruption, remaining sidewalk and streetscape construction has been deferred by 18 months until 2021 and will be completed in conjunction with the top-lift of asphalt road paving during the 2021 construction season. Check back in late 2020 for the planned 2021 construction schedule.
Detour route update
The one-way detours along 14 and 15 Avenue and the two-way detour along 16th Avenue will remain in their current configurations until the spring of 2020 while the City undertakes a detailed traffic analysis. Further information will be provided in Q2 2020.

Project vision

​17 Ave S.W. is a vibrant district and we're committed to keeping it that way. View images of the finished design after all the hard work is completed.

We're really into 17 Ave. S.W.

We're rebuilding 17 Avenue. Make sure to keep updated on the work, as we replace underground utilities and rebuild the road. We'll show you the best way to your destination on the Avenue no matter how you choose to get here. Here you'll be able to see all the ways to access businesses, shops, restaurants and parking in and around the construction zone.

The construction is making its way west, from Macleod Trail to 14 Street S.W., in one of Calgary's most vibrant neighbourhoods to eat, shop, and do business. The result will be a new 17 Avenue that will serve people who live, work, play and travel in the area for decades to come.
