The City of Calgary is investing in one of Calgary's oldest neighbourhoods to keep it safe, beautiful, and vibrant. With the recent completion of the new 9 Avenue S.E. bridge and updates to the CPKC Rail bridge and tracks, plus the future installation of the Green Line LRT bridge, we are looking to potentially improve and expand the pathway on the east side of the Elbow River between the Bow River and the McDonald Bridge, including underneath the 9 Avenue S.E. bridge. Improving this pathway would improve accessibility and connectivity for all Calgarians between the communities of Inglewood and Ramsay, the future LRT station, the River Walk and other connecting pathways, and surrounding amenities.

The map (to the right) identifies the location of the existing pathways on the east side of the Elbow River. The proposed improvements would include the addition of a new pathway connection underneath the 9 Avenue S.E. bridge.

Currently we are at the “Explore” stage of engagement for this functional planning study, where we review the design concept with the community and all interested parties, identifying the wants and needs of Calgarians, pathway users and nearby communities for this rebuilt pathway.

As part of the next steps for this functional planning study, engagement feedback, along with technical analysis will help inform the final design for this pathway. At present, the construction of this project is un-funded. Once funding becomes available, a construction and implementation timeline for the project will be shared.

We look forward to sharing the updated design of the pathway when it is ready in 2024.
