The final design for the 17 Avenue Main Street projects includes:

  • Curb extensions and signal upgrades to improve pedestrian crossings.
  • Sidewalk improvements.
  • Enhanced landscaping; including increasing the urban tree canopy.
  • Wider sidewalks on both sides of the bridge over Crowchild Trail at 17 Avenue.
  • Water and sanitary main upgrades on 17 Avenue between 28 Street and 26 Street, and on 26 Street between 17 Avenue and Bow Trail
  • Utility upgrades.
  • Curb extensions at four intersection near the Alexander Ferguson School as part of the Community Mobility Initiative program.

What will 17 Avenue look like?

Project background

17 Avenue S.W. (Crowchild Trail-37 Street), underwent the “design” step of the Main Streets program in 2018 and 2019. The City developed a streetscape master plan for 17 Avenue S.W. based on feedback, technical analysis, and financial considerations. The plans support the needs identified by the community and provides a vision that guides the detailed design and construction phases. This vision encompasses numerous considerations, including:

  • Enhanced pedestrian safety and comfort.
  • Improved mobility options, including transit and cycling.
  • A design that reflects its identity of the surrounding communities.
  • Green, friendly streets through naturalized boulevards, trees, and site furnishings.
