Notice – June 2nd, 2023:
We are preparing for a June construction kick-off for the Marda Loop Main Streets project. Construction will occur from June to November, and will take place in a phased approach. Understanding the unique character and dynamics of Marda Loop, we aim to maintain and grow the area’s vibrancy. We are working closely with the Marda Loop BIA to ensure Calgary knows Marda Loop is still open to enjoy, including the Marda Gras festival and summer Night Markets.
We know that improving safety for people walking, cycling, and driving in the area is a key priority for people who live, work, visit, and travel through Marda Loop. By creating new sidewalks, a multi-use pathway, and improved pedestrian crossings we are working to create safe and reliable experiences through speed separation, improved visibility, and accessibility.
Construction is variable. Although we do our best to plan accordingly to reduce the impacts on residents, construction in an older community like Marda Loop means that sometimes we run into surprises. We don’t anticipate any issues, but timelines could change should we discover any unexpected conditions. We expect to see adjustments to our schedule throughout the construction season, and our project page will be updated regularly with any schedule changes.
Though detailed 2023 construction schedule is currently being confirmed, we expect to start to work on 33 Avenue S.W. at 20 and/or 22 Streets the week of June 12.
To support the community through these first stages of work, we are hosting two virtual information sessions on June 12. The project team will provide an update on the anticipated timing of construction, where the community can expect to see activity, and how to prepare for construction. The same content will be presented at both sessions, which are scheduled at different times. We will also record a presentation, which we’ll post on the website after for those unable to attend.

We’re pleased to share that we’ve selected a contractor. We are now finalizing construction timing, approach, and more. Work will begin in June, however our team will be doing some prep work this month. The two major pieces the community will see are:
Below is more information about each of these items. We’re finalizing letters that will be sent to the community as soon as possible. We’ll also update our website, distribute a newsletter, and the team will be door knocking to those particularly impacted to raise awareness.
