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 conditions. Temporarily closing pathways and setting up detours allows work to be completed as quickly as possible, while keeping both citizens and workers safe.
Pathway closures due to slope stability follow best practice in slope stability management to ensure a safe re-opening. For more information, visit the Slope stability management policy and framework.
Thank you for your patience during construction.

Pathway closures/detours & access/proximity ePermits and manual
-- Found under Roads ePermits --
Private contractors, consultants, utility companies, and City personnel that require a closure of a City of Calgary pathway, due to construction should refer to the manual.
Governed by Bylaw 11M2019 (“Bylaw to Regulate the Use of Parks & Pathways”) Section 22 stipulates that “any work taking place within 5 meters of the edge of a pathway must have a permit.” This can be related to work commencing in access/proximity or requiring closure and detour of a City pathways involving underground utility work, construction, or any event that is impacting/in proximity to a pathway involving equipment/vehicles access/egress or temporary installations.
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.
