12 Street N.E. Mobility Improvements
Project update – April 2023
As Sunday, April 16 the temporary lane closures will be removed from the bridge and vehicle traffic will be restored to four lanes.
The new sidewalk will be open for pedestrians to use. To make this change, the bridge will temporarily be fully closed on Saturday night.
After that, we expect work to wrap up until the spring when minor landscaping and other finishing work will be completed, bringing this project to a close.
The way Calgarians get around is changing. More people are choosing to walk, scoot, skateboard, or cycle for their daily commute to work or school, for errands and for fun. As a city, we want to provide convenient and attractive transportation choices for Calgarians of all ages and abilities.
The City monitors existing bikeways and pathways and identified the 12 Street N.E. bridge for upgrades due to recent residential development at the east end of Bridgeland and a potential correlated increase in active mode users. This work also supports updated accessibility and transportation standards.
This project will provide a wider sidewalk for walking and wheeling, improved pedestrian crossings, and a better connection within the pathway and bikeway network.
