EDMONTON COMPLETED PROJECTS
This 262 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.
EDMONTON FUTURE PROJECTS
This pedestrian bridge is strategically located at the convergence of a number of trails. The bridge will link Edmonton and Strathcona County and will provide access to future regional park projects. For more information visit the City of Edmonton's Website
The third online public engagement event for the Edmonton-Strathcona Footbridge project will be held on Thursday, March 24, 2022 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. to share the preliminary design for the proposed footbridge and open spaces on each side of the North Saskatchewan River. Potential impacts to local trails during construction will also be presented. Please register for the presentation at edmonton.ca/
