17 Ave SW Line Burial Project

Project Overview

The City of Calgary has requested ENMAX Power Corporation (EPC) to relocate existing overhead electrical infrastructure underground to accommodate the ‘37 Street’ and ‘West 17’ Main Streets projects. This relocation ensures the alignment will be ready when the City of Calgary crews begin road construction in July and August of 2020.

Project work includes the following:

  • Burying overhead power lines; and,
  • Installing associated utility equipment

Utility work will occur in three areas:

  • 17 Avenue SW and 37 Street SW
  • 19 Avenue SW and 37 Street SW
  • 17 Avenue SW and 29 Street SW

This work will impact both traffic and pedestrian access along the defined streets. Please note, accommodations and traffic signage will be in place. This work commenced in early June 2020 and is anticipated to be complete by September 1, 2020.

Access to commercial buildings will be maintained throughout construction. This work will produce various noise levels and minor vibrations during construction hours. Businesses and residents directly impacted by construction activities will be notified in advance by ENMAX Power Customer Relations team.

For more information about the City of Calgary Main Streets projects, please call 311 or visit www.calgary.ca/west17mainstreet or www.calgary.ca/37streetmainstreet.
