11 Street /12 Street S.E. Route Improvements – Project Update from City of Calgary

from City of Calgary – Transportation Infrastructure

The City of Calgary is making changes to 11 Street and 12 Street S.E. - between 9 Avenue and 26 Avenue S.E. to improve the connectivity, access and mobility for people who travel through Ramsay to connect to the Inglewood community.

To address the gap in our sidewalk network along this corridor. We anticipate construction to begin in September 2020 and will be complete by the end of October. All construction is weather dependent, and every effort will be taken to minimize disruption to residents and businesses during construction.

Construction plans:

  • Installing a new asphalt sidewalk and wheelchair ramps on the east side of 11 Street between 17 Avenue to 19 Avenue S.E.
  • Adding a pedestrian crossing across 12 street at 11 avenue SE with overhead pedestrian flasher to improve this connection for people wheeling and walking.
  • Installing a new asphalt sidewalk and wheelchair ramps along the west side of 11 Street between 21 Avenue and 26 Avenue S.E., including a new pedestrian crossing for the CP Rail tracks.
  • Putting in a new southbound bus pad on the west side of 11 Street just south of 23 Avenue S.E.
  • Adding a wheelchair ramp on the southwest corner of 10 Avenue and 12 Street S.E. This wheelchair ramp will be smaller than typical to ensure the nearby tree will not be removed.

A map showing the locations where construction will occur is attached.

During construction, we will temporarily close one vehicle travel lane along 11/12 Street S.E. to complete the work; however, traffic will still be maintained through the area and no truck detours will be required as a result of this work. Business access and transit routes will be maintained.  Although some sidewalks will be closed during construction, alternative pedestrian accommodation will be provided.

When this project is complete, people who travel through Ramsay to connect to the Inglewood community will benefit from improvements in connectivity, access and mobility along the corridor. There will be new connections to local businesses and key destinations such as the Crossroads Market, the Bow River and the 9 Avenue Main Street area.

People walking, wheeling and driving along the corridor can stay up-to-date on construction activities on calgary.ca/12st or they can subscribe to receive email updates.
