Construction has begun on 17 Ave S.W. to rebuild the road, improve sidewalks and cross walks, upgrade utilities and more. Bus routes 6 and 7 are impacted by detours starting August 2017. As construction moves west it will impact Route 2 in 2018.
Construction 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. Up to three or four blocks of 17 Avenue will be closed at a time in stages and traffic will be detoured to 14 and 15 Avenues, which have been converted to one way streets.
