The new bridge across the Bow River located near the SLS Family Recreation Center is currently under detailed design. Construction is expected to start by the end of summer 2018. The new bridge and the arterial road connections will also include on-street bike lanes and a separated, parallel 3 metre-wide multi-use pathway that connects with Cochrane’s existing pathway system.
There will be opportunities for public input into the bridge name and some of the aesthetic aspects of the bridge. Watch for more information coming soon.
The map below indicates the general location of the new bridge and a conceptual alignment of the proposed James Walker Trail corridor. The alignment will be finalized as part of the ongoing detailed design.
