Summer months tend to be busy and Calgarians use our pathways and bikeways extensively. Periodically pathways may need to be closed due to maintenance, construction work or other unsafe consitions. Temporarily closing pathways and setting up detours allows work to be completed as quickly as possible, while keeping both citizens and workers safe.
Thank you for your patience during construction.
Important updates and closures
To help Calgarians maintain the 2 metres of physical distance we are expanding the routes available to pathway users. We will continue to have a walk only zone from 6 Street SW to Centre Street and are adding a suggested wheeling detour (bikes, rollerblades AND scooters) to relieve the congestion in the Eau Claire area.

Encroaching on parks and greenspaces bylaw
Sometimes residential property owners or construction work encroaches on City-owned parks and greenspaces. Find out more about the Encroachments bylaw.
Snow on our pathways
Is it snowing? To make it easier for Calgarians to use the pathway system, maintenance activities include clearing snow from approximately 400 kilometers of paved (regional) pathways, usually within 24 hours of a snowfall. Be sure to check out the latest information about snow clearing on Calgary’s pathways.
