Canadian Pacific is installing a second rail bridgeCanadian Pacific (CP) is installing a second bridge over the Elbow River adjacent to and south of the existing rail bridge between 7 Street S.E. and 8 Street S.E. Bridge construction is planned for 2020, with additional work on CP property in 2021.

Closure of east Elbow River pathway

The City has closed the east Elbow River pathway under the CP tracks for the construction of the CP rail bridge. People walking in the area can use the pathway detour option that includes 11 Street/12 Street S.E. Pathway detour maps are now posted near the closure and online to help you see how you can continue to travel between Ramsay and Inglewood.

Will more tracks mean more rail traffic?

CP’s bridge reconfiguration will improve rail traffic flow through Alyth Yard, enabling CP to process trains more efficiently. CP’s rail traffic and train frequency fluctuates with the needs of its customers.
