The current scope of engineering work includes the design and construction for the replacement of the Duggan Bridge, and the road rehabilitation of Saskatchewan Drive from 106 Street to 107 Street. The detailed design of the bridge and road will be completed in fall 2020.
The new bridge will be a single span with steel girders supporting a concrete deck. The bridge will carry the same 2 lanes of traffic with a sidewalk to the south. The sidewalk on the north will be changed to a 4.2 metre wide shared-use path. A pedestrian lookout will be constructed as part of the bridge.
Construction is anticipated to start in late 2020. The pedestrian and vehicular connections along Saskatchewan Drive will be affected during construction. Bridge and road closures, including trails and sidewalks on both Saskatchewan Drive and Fort Hill Road, are expected.
Some boulevard trees near the bridge and native vegetation below the bridge will be removed for construction. The native vegetation will be replaced. Boulevard tree replacements may be affected by new below ground services.
