A new bridge will be designed and constructed to replace this pedestrian crossing over Whitemud Creek. The tentative opening is planned in 2022.
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.
The bridge is expected to be open for pedestrians
The preliminary design work is anticipated to be complete in early 2021
Once a contactor is secured for the build phase, we will provide notice in advance when construction is anticipated to start and end
The pedestrian connection and adjacent parking lot will be closed during construction
