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.

Budget

The cost of the rehabilitation is estimated at $2.5 million.
