About the Project
The Terwillegar Drive Expansion Program has identified a new pedestrian/cyclist bridge over Whitemud Drive, between Whitemud Drive/Terwillegar Drive interchange and Whitemud Creek (between the neighbourhoods of Brookside and Brookview). This project also includes active mode connections and open space upgrades.
Whitemud Drive is a significant barrier to a planned district connector route identified in The Bike Plan and The City Plan. A new pedestrian/cyclist bridge will help resolve this barrier, enhancing access and connectivity for walking, cycling and rolling in southwest Edmonton and city-wide. Edmonton’s active transportation network is essential to achieving the outcomes of the City Plan and goals of ConnectEdmonton, Edmonton’s strategic plan.
Although the previous assumed location is at 142 Street, this location will be reviewed and validated as part of this project.
The project is funded as part of the Terwillegar Drive Expansion Program and in partnership with the Government of Alberta. The City funding includes planning and design while detailed design and construction is funded by the Government of Alberta.
