My office has been asked about construction under way and what is happening, so I figured I can showcase some of the projects under way this summer. Over $130M new investments are under construction this summer in Calgary.
This is not including the Green Line, BMO expansion, Glenbow Museum renovation, and the Arts Commons expansion. For many, Calgary has two seasons: winter and construction season. #yyc #yycbuilds #yyccc
West 17 Avenue and 37 Street Main Streets
Crews are ramping up to complete construction on both the West 17 Avenue and 37 Street Main Street projects this season. On 37 Street, the majority of the work this year will be north of 17 Avenue, including widened sidewalks on the west side, and a new multiuse pathway on the east side of 37 Street S.W. This season we will also be resurfacing 37 Street between Richmond Road and Bow Trail S.W.
On 17 Avenue, crews will continue to work east from 37 Street towards the 17 Avenue bridge over Crowchild Trail on wider sidewalks, intersection improvements, traffic signal upgrades and creating more inviting public spaces along the Avenue. Traffic has already been shifted onto the south side of 17 Avenue on the bridge over Crowchild Trail, with one lane each of eastbound and westbound traffic maintained.
“We’re looking forward to wrapping up the major construction for these two new Main Streets,” said Project Manager Syed Ali. “When we finish construction this season, 17 Avenue and 37 Street will be more vibrant, welcoming places for Calgarians who live and visit these areas.”
