Nightly closure of a portion of The Bow River Pathway

Beginning Tuesday, January 15 for approximately one month, the City will be closing The Bow River Pathway on the east side of Crowchild Trail (north side of the river) every night between 10 p.m. - 5 a.m.

The City of Calgary will be conducting heavy concrete demolition work overhead. To ensure citizens’ safety, this portion of the pathway will be closed.

Given the recent sensitivities surrounding pathway closures, the City is taking the following measures to ensure residents are made aware of this closure ahead of time and that the inconvenience to them is minimized as much as possible:

  • The closure is being restricted to off-peak, overnight hours;
  • Installation of five digital message boards along the pathway;
  • Installation of detour signage that will help direct pedestrians and cyclists using this portion of the pathway overnight;
  • Advance communication of the upcoming closure via project page, e-newsletter, direct emails to impacted community associations, and a personalized email to our partners at Bike Calgary.


Upcoming bridge work

In the City’s continued effort to avoid impacting citizens’ weekday commutes, they will be installing girders and pouring concrete on the bridge over the Bow River this weekend. The impacts will be as follows:

Friday, January 11 (10 p.m.) - Saturday, January 12 (6 p.m.)

  • Double lane closure along southbound Crowchild Trail over the Bow River.

  • Single right-hand lane closure along southbound Crowchild Trail over the Bow River.
  • A yield sign will be temporarily added for drivers coming onto southbound Crowchild Trail from the eastbound Memorial Drive/Parkland Boulevard ramp.

Increased on-site activity

Last year, the City’s focus was working on the underside of the bridge. In 2019, citizens will notice a lot more activity up on top. Increased activity will begin this week. For more details, visit the project page.
