CALGARY, ALTA. — PCL Construction has been awarded the $48 million contract to replace Calgary’s Bow River Bridge on Stoney Trail.
Provincial officials said the total project cost, which includes engineering and utility relocations, is estimated at $60 million.
In addition to building a bridge, the scope of the project includes widening the westbound bridge and building a new standalone pedestrian bridge.
Work on the new bridge is expected to start this spring and be completed in late 2023.
About 53,000 vehicles use the existing South Bow River Bridge daily, according to the province.
In September, provincial officials announced that engineers found the current width and lane configuration will not handle future traffic volumes that will come when the southwest ring road project wraps up.
