The City of Calgary is dedicated to keeping Calgarians on the move; whether in a car, on a bike or on foot. Pedestrian bridges, also known as pedestrian overpasses, are a necessary part of the overall transportation network and helps pedestrians get safely from one point to another. The location and priority of pedestrian bridges is often defined by the pedestrian overpass priority study or POPS. Other pedestrian bridges may be designed and built as a part of a larger transportation construction project.
Transportation Infrastructure (TI) provides the bridge and structural engineering expertise for The City’s transportation infrastructure and manages the design and construction of pedestrian bridges integrated into the city's transportation network. TI also offers technical expertise and support to other City business units and sets guidelines and specifications for The City of Calgary's bridges and structures related to transportation infrastructure.
