EDMONTON PHASE I PROJECTS
This 280 m pedestrian bridge spans the North Saskatchewan River, linking Edmonton’s River Valley Oleskiw on the north bank to Terwillegar Park on the south bank. The bridge is the world’s second longest stressed ribbon suspension bridge.
This initiative included the development of a funicular and elevator from Edmonton’s downtown core into the river valley, enabling barrier-free access to the valley and existing trail system.
Approximately 5 km of primary and secondary trails built to provide linkages along the river in Southwest Edmonton. A primary trail links to the Terwillegar Pedestrian Bridge. A secondary trail connects the West Anthony Henday Bridge to Terwillegar Park.
This project included the construction of approximately 14 km of primary and secondary trails in the east end of Edmonton on both the north and south sides of the river, creating connections to the existing Corporal Ainsworth Dyer Bridge and Anthony Henday East Bridge.
This project included hand launches and docks at four locations in Edmonton, including the refurbishment of one motor boat launch. These river access points provide safe and efficient access to the river, and include parking, comfort stations, and waste receptacles.
