Thread: Walterdale Bridge Replacement | U/C

  1. #3501

    Default



    Walked aross via the SUP tonight. It is very nice. The boardwalk part on the right (sorry, my phone is not good in low light) starts wide, narrows to the centre, then widens again, making the whole path narrower mid-river.

    Having to cross the road on the south side instead of the north adds a little bit of time to my walk home but it is worth it.

    Is the lighting made by a company called Movilume?

    The LED lighting in winter looks great downtown. It brightens up everything on long winter nights.

    ... just wait until the snow melts and those lights can reflect off the water and back onto the arches!

    Can’t wait to see the access from Kinsmen completed and the surrounding sidewalks connected and landscaping completed. It’s going to be a huge mess come April.

    Is all that stuff - the landscaping, trail connections, pedestrian walkways under the bridge, berm removal, etc. - part of the bridge contract and therefore way past deadline?

    Yes the land and trail restoration is part of the project.

    Saw this pic on the news. Bianca Millions and Bill Fortier had discussion that this shot could be from the perspective of a troll living under the bridge. Beautiful photo for sure.

    Geez, Bianca and the late-weekend-news lady had an unrehearsed chuckle about it last night.

    Looking forward to when the paths are back open. Been closed for so long.

    Speaking of demolition, the guys pulling back the northside jetty have been putting in some serious time lately - past midnight, even past 1:30am one night before I had to go to bed.

    A beautiful addition to the city's river valley that screams for a facility or attraction next to it (cough, old power plant or some appropriate replacement) where patrons can attend events, recreate and otherwise enjoy the view of the lit arch while consuming food and beverages.

    Council will have to study your suggestion. As well, numerous committees and sub committees will have to be set-up to discuss what is a good idea but will have to be shutdown because .... well let's just say because.

    http://edmontonjournal.com/news/loca...funding-debate

    City council members reviewed initial concept drawings Tuesday and voted to prepare a funding package for debate this fall while setting the next four-year capital budget. City officials would need funding to consult with the public on the design, check whether they really want more access to the water itself and what kind of development they want in the core reach of the river.
    The plan would cover a new walkway for up to two kilometres between the Walterdale Bridge and Government House Park.

    Something definitely should be done along RVR between 105th and Groat. The multi-use trail is jam packed and could definitely use a split between lower and higher speed activities. Several of the parking lots on the North side of it should have been paved 20 years ago. And for god's sake, stop giving the dilapidated cherry trailer a business license while also building some sort of permanent structure similar to the one at Louise McKinney to house a small cafe and a place to rent bikes etc.

    Edmonton: a small path is doing well. I hope to gawd something like this happens in my lifetime. At McKinney Park we have to climb down the rocks from the promenade to hit water. Crazy.

    There's one thing I know, you can be sure they'll go ahead with it no matter what the people tell them.

    And then when the thousands of trees are mowed down and everything is paved, they'll discover that there's barely any more people going there than before.

    BTW, the "congestion" thing is an absolute myth. I know because I go there.
