Please be aware of an upcoming detour on the 3rd Ave SW wheeling lanes. Starting on August 22, ATCO will be working on 3rd Ave SW between 2nd and 3rd Street SW. This work is expected to take 5 weeks, and is happening in preparation for the Green Line LRT project. See below for more information. Given the impacts to the 3rd Avenue cycle track we hope to see a thoughtful and safe transition in place for this detour.
