Replacement of 14th St W Pedestrian Bridge @ 7 Ave N with an At-Grade Crossing (July 1, 2020 to August 31, 2020)

14 Street & 7 Ave NW Intersection Upgrades & Pedestrian Bridge Closure

Notice from the City of Calgary | June 2020 

This message is to inform surrounding Community Associations that The City of Calgary will be making upgrades to improve accessibility for pedestrians crossing 14 Street N.W. at 7 Avenue N.W.

The pedestrian bridge that crosses over 14 Street N.W. at 7 Ave. N.W. has reached the end of its service life and needs to be closed and demolished. Due to space and budget limitations and issues with traffic striking the bridge on occasion, the decision has been made to not replace the overpass bridge. Instead, an at-grade crossing, that is accessible to all users, will be installed at this location during the Summer of 2020.

To improve safety and consistency along the corridor for all road users, the speed limit on 14 Street N.W. from 8 Avenue to 20 Avenue N.W. will also be permanently reduced to 50 km/h from 60 km/h.

As this is a popular crossing spot for students coming and going from Hillhurst School, The City has committed to having the new at-grade in place for the 2020/21 school year which is expected to begin in September 2020.

Currently, with COVID-19 restrictions in place and schools closed, there is relatively low pedestrian traffic and motor vehicle traffic in the area. However, the decision has been made to keep the pedestrian bridge open and in-use until the at-grade crossing is complete.


This project will begin on July 1, 2020 with completion on or before August 30, 2020.

  • Early July – Signal work and speed limit reduction signage placed
  • Early July to late August – Construction of at-grade crossing
  • Mid-August – Removal of pedestrian bridge

Traffic impacts

  • Permanent speed limit reduction along 14 Street to 50 km/h
  • Rotating lane closures throughout the project
  • Full road closure (overnight) for demolition of the pedestrian bridge

If you require further information or have questions about the proposed timeline, please contact Charmaine Buhler, Manager of Bridge Maintenance at The City of Calgary, atCharmaine.Buhler@calgary.ca.

Guidebook for Great Communities: Public Hearing Delayed

The April edition of the HHBH Beacon will be published shortly, and it has an article that outlines some of the HHBH Community Association’s (CA’s) concerns regarding the City of Calgary’s “Guidebook for Great Communities” (Guidebook).    The Guidebook will produce very significant changes in the way that development occurs in established residential neighbourhoods in our City.   A key concern for CAs in established areas across the city is the fact that the proposed changes will effectively remove single family zoning.  If approved this means is that on any lot in our neighbourhood, developers could build a single family home, a duplex, a triplex, or townhouses of up to three storeys.  Approvals for such developments would be granted.  Any form of such housing developments would be allowed on any street – meaning  a single street could be a haphazard mix of bungalows, duplexes, triplexes fourplexes or rowhousing.

A hearing and presentation to City Council on the Guidebook was scheduled for April 27.  Together with other CAs, the HHBH CA lobbied to have the date postponed, given the impossibility of effectively engaging with residents on such a significant development issue during a pandemic.  Last week, we received notice that City administration will be recommending that the hearing on this matter be deferred to a later date.  Of course no date has been set yet, but we will continue to post information regarding this issue on the HHBH website so please stay tuned.  We will do more to engage with local residents when it is safe to do so.  Stay well everyone.
