Bow Valley Trail CPR Corridor Crossing


Project Updates

August 23, 2017

The pathway across the CPR tracks is open for people walking and biking. Construction of the multi-use pathway, retaining wall, new stormwater infrastructure, and landscaping along Bow Valley Trail is also complete.  Additional construction works to install site furnishings such as lighting and bike racks are scheduled for mid-September.  Thank you all for your patience and understanding during construction.  

Past Project Updates

To improve accessibility, comfort, and safety of the pedestrian connection between Bow Valley Trail and the Town Centre, we will be improving the existing corridor to better accommodate people walking and biking, and allow for proper winter maintenance.  

We thank you all for your patience and understanding during construction of this pathway.  Landscaping is underway and construction equipment is still on-site; however, we are making every effort to maintain access to the pathways for people walking and biking.  Here are a couple photos of the pathway already in use!

Work completed through this project involves:

  • Widen the pedestrian connection through the crossing
  • Remove and relocate the existing garbage bins and fencing
  • Raise the grades of the pathway along Bow Valley Trail
  • Improve stormwater drainage
  • Install pedestrian lighting through the corridor
  • Shorten the crossing distance for people walking and biking across Bow Valley Trail
  • Improve landscaping and aesthetic of the area


The goals of this project are to:

  • Improve the comfort and safety for all users
  • Create a functional connection for year-round maintenance and use
  • Improve the connection between the Town Centre and the Hospital area
  • Accommodate the increase in user volumes
  • Create an intuitive pathway that encourages and promotes use
  • Improve the connection between the Town Centre and the businesses and residences of Bow Valley Trail
