The bridge deck is in place at Sandy Beach, but the bridge is not open yet!
Although it looks like the new pedestrian bridges over the Elbow River are done when the deck panels go in, a lot of work still needs to be done before the bridges can be safely opened for use. This work includes: fabricating and installing bridge railings, constructing concrete back walls and approach slabs and reconstructing pathways that lead up to each bridge. There is also landscaping and general finishing work to be done.
The areas around all three bridges are construction zones, and will remain so until the construction ends and the bridges are open for use. Please stay out of these areas for safety reasons.
