Many of our residents have provided input into the proposed Pedestrian Bridge project over the last couple of years. In September of this year, the Pedestrian Bridge project went to the Calgary Planning Commission with the attached site plan, and a project rendering of the selected design.
Detailed design is currently underway and the City will update the project webpage when that process is complete. We anticipate construction to begin in the first quarter of 2018 and expect the bridge to be completed within 12 to 15 months of commencement of construction. While there may be intermittent closures on the current pedestrian overpass, we don’t expect any major impacts to citizens. We will provide updates as the project progresses.
