Beginning August 8, Calgary District Heating Inc. will begin the first phase of a significant utility relocation project. Phase 1 will impact 5 Avenue between 2 and 3 Street S.W., taking up the three centre lanes of the road, leaving two lanes for through-traffic. A plan has been developed to potentially reverse one lane of 6 Avenue, coinciding with higher expected traffic volumes in September.

This impact from Phase 1 is expected to be in place until late September 2023.

Phase 2 of this project will close 3 Street S.W. between 5 and 6 Avenue for approximately five-to-six weeks.
Phase 3 of this project will require the closure of two northern lanes of 6 Avenue between 2 and 3 Street S.W.
