In summer 2017, construction began on 17 Ave S.W. to rebuild the road, improve sidewalks and cross walks, upgrade utilities and more. The work is happening in stages over three to four years, beginning at the east end of 17 Avenue and moving west to 14 Street S.W.
During upcoming construction 2018 season (spring through fall), up to four blocks of 17 Avenue will be closed at a time in stages and traffic will be detoured. During road closures bus routes 2, 6 and 7 will be impacted by detours.

Status of 17 Avenue S.W. construction project
In the summer and fall of 2017, sections of 17 Avenue between Macleod Trail and 5 Street S.W. were closed for construction. The work in that area is now finished and 17 Avenue is fully open to traffic and on-street parking.
Bus routes #6 and #7 are back to running their regular routes and bus stops will be restored to their original locations.
Construction will begin again in the spring of 2018. Check the construction schedule for updates.
