As part of the Rivers District Master Plan, the Calgary Municipal Land Corporation (CMLC) is leading the 17th Avenue SE Extension and Victoria Park/Stampede Station Rebuild project. This project will connect Stampede Park to the Beltline; it is being run and funded by CMLC.
Calgary Transit is collaborating with CMLC on aspects of the project related to station design and transit service. Part of the project will see the rebuilding of Victoria Park/Stampede Station. The new station will feature:
Calgary Transit is doing everything we can to reduce service impacts due to the project. We will maintain temporary station access points throughout construction. A temporary CTrain platform will be built so customers can continue accessing the station. Some planned LRT closures related to the project will be necessary but our goal is to schedule closures during off-peak times to reduce customer impacts. Once construction is underway, you can find updates about service impacts by visiting our Service Updates page. For any construction, detour or lane closure related information, please visit the CMLC project page. A pedestrian detour is now in effect on site. You can learn more about that here.
Customers will notice the access points at Victoria Park/Stampede Station are getting an update this fall. Beginning on October 12, all pedestrian access to and from the station will be via street-level crossings at 17 Avenue and 14 Avenue. There will be signs on site to help customers navigate the area; we’re also asking customers to follow detours as marked for their safety and the safety of construction crews. You can view a detour map of the area here.
