12 Street N.E. Mobility Improvements
Project update – October 2023
Our work on the 12 Street N.E. bridge is complete. Over the summer, we completed a few outstanding items including minor landscaping and finishing work. We appreciate the community’s patience as we worked to upgrade the bridge for pedestrians, cyclists, and drivers. We believe the widened sidewalks, improved crossings, and increased connectivity will benefit those who work, live, and visit the area for years to come.
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.
