The Mechanized River Valley Access project connects 100 Street near the Hotel Macdonald to the river valley trail system near the Low Level Bridge. In addition to the funicular, the project features a pedestrian bridge, a unique urban staircase, an elevator and several seating areas and lookout points along the way.
Along with increasing connectivity in the river valley, the project is intended to address the challenges some citizens may face in accessing the river valley from Edmonton’s downtown.
