Shouldice pedestrian bridge rehabilitation
The Shouldice (Hextall) Bridge, constructed in 1910, is a three-span, Pratt through-truss, steel bridge. It spans the Bow River and connects the neighbourhoods of Bowness and Montgomery. Originally a road and street railway bridge, it is now part of the Bow River Pathway, a bicycle and pedestrian system.
Traffic and pedestrian impacts
Impacts to the public will be minimal as pedestrian and cycling access will be maintained throughout construction.
Scope of work
The rehabilitation work will include:
- Removal of the existing wood bridge deck and replacing it with a concrete one that includes aesthetic and historical features.
- Repairs to the bridge structure.
- Lighting improvements.
- Recoating the truss members.
The cost of the rehabilitation is estimated at $2.5 million.
- April – December 2022
