Calgary bridge design competition, Canada
The Calgary Municipal Land Corporation (CMLC) today launched St. Patrick’s Island Bridge conceptual design competition
CMLC is seeking submissions for the creation of a bridge for pedestrians and cyclists from qualified candidates who demonstrate cost effective, innovative design with consideration for safety, connectivity, aesthetics and common design guidelines.
The deadline for the conceptual submissions is Monday, September 14, 2009. All design guidelines and criteria are available on the CMLC website at www.calgarymlc.ca.
The link over the Bow River must connect East Village with the north shore of the Bow River and have a landing onto St. Patrick’s Island. The bridge will be an important pedestrian and cyclist connector for many communities and pathway users throughout the inner city. It will replace an older existing bridge near the west end of St. Patrick’s Island which does not currently offer a direct connection to the north bank of the Bow River, and has some existing constraints.
