This bridge will be replaced with a repurposed section of the Connors Road pedestrian bridge with construction anticipated to begin in spring 2021.

Project Update - March 2021

Demolition of the existing bridge is set to begin in March 2021. This work will require a full closure of the bridge and the adjacent trails.

About the Project

The Blackmud Creek pedestrian bridge east of 111 Street is located in the Blackmud Creek Ravine. This bridge is an extension of Running Creek Road and is no longer used for vehicular traffic.

The pedestrian bridge was constructed in 1971 and was historically used as a vehicle bridge before it was repurposed as a pedestrian bridge in 1994. The existing bridge is a 30 metre long, three-span concrete deck bridge supported by a treated timber substructure. The bridge is reaching the end of its service life and a full replacement is required. 

Following the condition assessment, a preliminary design was completed in 2020. Detailed design is complete, with construction anticipated to begin in spring 2021.
