Rehabilitation Work On St. Albert Pedestrian Bridges

Work part of long-term bridge

maintenance strategy

The City of St. Albert is undertaking rehabilitation work on several of its pedestrian bridges throughout St. Albert as part of the City’s long-term bridge maintenance strategy.

The four pedestrian bridges that will be rehabilitated include McKenney, Berrymore (behind St. Albert Centre), Braeside Ravine and Oakmont. Work is underway on the McKenney Bridge starting October 10, 2012. Rehabilitation work on other bridges may be carried over to 2013 as work is weather dependent.

“The City of St. Albert continues to upgrade and enhance its infrastructure on a regular basis,” says Sue Howard, Capital Projects Manager. “The work on our pedestrian bridges is part of our long-term plan to ensure the bridges maintain their structural integrity and meet all safety standards and codes.”

Specific rehabilitation work on the bridges includes reducing the size of the openings in railings surrounding the pedestrian walkways, putting up signage asking people riding bikes to dismount and walk across the bridge to avoid collisions with pedestrians, and repairing normal wear and tear on the bridges. Construction will not disturb vehicle traffic on St. Albert Trail or other streets. Work will be confined to the bridge itself.

The cost for the rehabilitation work for the four pedestrian bridges is approximately $250,000 from the Bridge Rehabilitation Program.
