The City is building a new pedestrian bridge at 170 Street between 87 Avenue and 90 Avenue. The bridge is anticipated to be complete by fall 2022.

Project Update - September 2021

Construction is anticipated to start in October (see bulletin ). Prior to construction starting, selected trees will be removed that are in the alignment of the new bridge and ramps.

Tree preservation is an important part of the 170 Street Pedestrian Bridge project, and new trees will be planted in the project area. The tree removal is scheduled to start in early October and will take approximately 1 week to complete. No access for businesses or residents will be impacted.

About the Project

The City has identified a need for a new grade-separated pedestrian bridge to allow for safe crossing of 170 Street between 87 Avenue and 90 Avenue. A new pedestrian bridge will provide pedestrians access to area businesses, schools and transit options while minimizing disruption to vehicular traffic along 170 Street. An interim crosswalk at 170 Street and 90 Avenue was also installed in late 2019 to accommodate current safety and accessibility needs.
