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.
The two bridges and connecting pathway continue to be closed to ensure public safety. Inspection and testing done as a normal part of transferring project ownership from the Contractor to the City revealed some modifications that need to be made to the bridges. The City is currently working to install temporary structural shoring at the bridges that will enable the bridges to be open for the summer months. The bridges will be closed again over the winter for permanent repairs.
Pathway closure and detour guidelines
This manual is intended as a practical working reference to be used by private contractors, consultants, utility companies, and City personnel that require a closure of a City of Calgary pathway, for the purposes of construction.
Encroaching on parks and greenspaces bylaw
Sometimes, landowners and/or residential homeowners, encroach on these designated properties. This includes City-owned parks and greenspaces. Find out more about the Encroachments bylaw.

Questions or concerns about pathways
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.
