About the Project

The Smith Crossing Pedestrian Bridge, located along 23 Avenue, provides access to the MacTaggart and Larch Sanctuaries within the river valley system. The existing bridge was built in the early 1900s and has reached the end of its service life.

A new bridge will be designed and constructed to replace this pedestrian crossing over the Whitemud Creek. The new bridge will be near the existing bridge location to reduce environmental impacts and to retain the trail connections.
