Pedestrian bridges and structures

Transportation Infrastructure (TI) manages the design and construction of pedestrian bridges and structures integrated into the city's transportation network. The location and priority of pedestrian bridges is often defined by the pedestrian overpass priority study or POPS. Other pedestrian bridges and structures may be designed and built as a part of a larger transportation construction project.

The City has also established the Centre City Underpass Enhancement Program as an important part in the building of a great downtown core where visual art is integrated into existing public infrastructure. For Underpass Enhancements, The City of Calgary follows the Council approved Downtown Underpass Urban Design Guidelines.

The City of Calgary Design Guidelines for Bridges and Structures reflects the latest requirements for safety, durability, functionality and aesthetics of bridges and structures. For a copy of the guidelines, email:
