Design and construction of trails and bridges in the river valley, whether large or small, play a vital role in shaping the overall character of the existing river valley experience. EDA Collaborative Inc. provided trail planning and design assistance to the City of Edmonton with an important trail linkage to a new pedestrian bridge crossing. The new 2 KM trail included an initial corridor assessment followed by an analysis of several route alternatives before a final route was determined. The final trail has a soft pack, granular tread as well as several timber stairways on steeper slopes. The trail layout links to two new river valley footbridges with adjacent residential communities.
