Project Update - May 2023
The new footbridge is being constructed to cross the North Saskatchewan River, linking the City of Edmonton (167 Avenue) with Strathcona County (Township Road 540). This footbridge will improve access and connectivity, leading toward a continuous multi-use trail system in the North Saskatchewan River Valley.
Closures of the area will begin in June as pre-construction activities are underway.
During construction, the shared-use path that runs parallel to the North Saskatchewan River will be temporarily closed near the Quarry Golf Course with no access through to 167 Avenue northeast. Trail users can still access the trail starting at 17 Street northeast until the dead-end. Please see map below for more information.
