Bow Valley Trail CPR Corridor Crossing


Project Updates

June 22, 2017

The pathway across the CPR tracks is now open. Construction will now proceed to Bow Valley Trail. Construction along Bow Valley Trail will involve raising the pathway up to grade with the roadway, adding separation between the roadway and the pathway, addition of new storm-water infrastructure, and landscaping.  There will be localized traffic delays and detours on Bow Valley Trail as needed while work is underway.

Major construction will be completed in July, with remaining landscaping and site furnishings to follow.

There will be temporary traffic delays and temporary detours for people walking and people biking during construction where required. 

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.

This project will involve:

  • 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

We will make every effort to ensure access through this crossing is maintained during construction.  Temporary closures may result as required by construction activities to ensure public safety, and advanced notification will be provided.  Impacts to adjacent businesses and residences will be minimized.

The enhancements to the existing pathway are aimed at accomplishing the following:

  • 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
