SE 17 Avenue Transitway Project Updates – October 20, 2017

Good afternoon –

Crews are still busy out on International Avenue and this weekend there be two intersections where utility work needs to be done:

  • Starting 7 p.m. Friday, October 20 until Monday, October 23 northbound traffic at 36 Street S.E. will be detoured
  • October 20-23: Traffic will be reduced to a single lane of traffic in each direction at 54 Street S.E.

This week crews will also be prepping and pouring concrete for the parking stalls on the south side of the Avenue between 33 and 36 Streets. There will also be intermittent northbound intersection closures during the day between 38 and 47 Street so crews can finish the road work in the intersections.

On the weekend of October 28, paint crews will be out to adjust the road lines at 47 Street S.E. That week crews will also be putting in the third layer of asphalt from 33 to 36 Street, and doing electrical and streetlight work on the north side of 17 Avenue between 38 and 47 Street.

Don’t forget your favourite businesses on International Avenue are open during construction, so make sure to stop by. Thank you for your continued patience as we work to make 17 Avenue a great space for everyone. For more details on the work happening over the next few weeks please see the attached update.
