    Default Peace Bridge Calgary Canada

    Peace Bridge is a pedestrian bridge crossing the Bow River in Calgary, Alberta, Canada currently under construction.
    The bridge was proposed by the city of Calgary to connect the southern Bow River pathway and Downtown Calgary with the northern Bow River pathway and the community of Sunnyside.
    The city of Calgary contracted the architectural and structural design with Santiago Calatrava for $3.903 million. The projected completion cost is $22 million.
    It is expected that the bridge will be used used by more than 5,000 people daily.

    This is the temorary construction bridge used to install the actual bridge on the landings seen to the right. The second photo is what it will look like.
    The bridge is on its way to Calgary and will be arriving soon I hope to get some good photos of it being installed on its footings.

    Looks like the new bridge will be a bright new landmark in it's own right. Should make for some nice shots.
