Recently, the Beltline community of Calgary has been apart of Nenshi’s 1st St major rejuvenation plan, giving the community more classy, uptown status. 1st Street runs right through the heart of the Beltline, and is undergoing updates to make the area feel modern while maintaining its historical roots.
One of the biggest construction projects on first street that was completed just a little while ago is the 1st St SW Underpass. This underpass has the highest pedestrian use of all Centre City at 9,500 pedestrians per day, and it was in major need of a renovation.The CP Railway continues to travel overhead, with aesthetically historic CPR architecture alongside it.
The project enhancements included
-new sidewalks and guardrails
