Bridge location study area between the neighbourhoods of Brookside and Brookview

The City has started the planning and design of a pedestrian/cyclist bridge over Whitemud Drive near Whitemud Creek.

Public Engagement Opportunities

We invite you to share your feedback on the draft vision, guiding principles and concept ideas. Your input will be used alongside City plans, policies and technical requirements to confirm the vision, principles and determine a bridge crossing location, active transportation connections and opportunities for amenities and landscaping.

Feedback from the November/December 2020 public engagement opportunity can be found in the What We Heard report.

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. 

Funding

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.

Public Engagement

A comprehensive engagement process will be undertaken to create a common vision and principles, understand opportunities and issues, and develop the concept and preliminary design. The concept and preliminary design will balance public input, technical requirements and goals from City plans and policies.

To ensure the health and safety of participants, engagement opportunities will include a series of online activities that will be available through the City’s digital engagement platform, Engaged Edmonton. Recognizing that COVID-19 represents an unpredictable and unique scenario, the City has made the decision to cancel all in-person public engagement events until further notice.

What We Heard: January 2021

Community Committee

To ensure a transparent public engagement process which creates opportunities for a diverse range of community members to contribute towards the decision making, the City formed a Community Committee. It is responsible for helping to adapt and adjust the public engagement process. The Community Committee is made up of neighbourhood residents, community organizations, and members of the public.

The Community Committee will not provide input on the design of the bridge or surrounding amenities/open space. The opportunity to share design related feedback is available through participation in the public engagement activities.
