Calgary engineers take public input on bridges
City of Calgary engineers have taken public input about their use of pedestrian bridges along the Elbow River, which were destroyed during the June floods.
Three pedestrian bridges owned by the City of Calgary in the neighbourhoods of Rideau/Roxboro, Elbow Park and Britannia (Sandy Beach) were damaged beyond repair during the June 2013 flood and will be replaced to modern engineering standards.
The bridges will be removed as they are not salvageable and represent a safety hazard.
The City of Calgary plans to work through its tendering process to hire a consultant to design the bridges. During the design process, bridge users will be provided with opportunities to provide feedback and various bridge systems will be evaluated for their suitability.
