Peace Bridge Closed For Maintenance

Lisa Cai Community, Daily Life, Updates

The Peace Bridge will be closed from Monday, June 8 to Thursday, June 11 for maintenance. Two expansion joints will be replaced, one at each end of the bridge.

Opened for use in 2012, the Peace Bridge connects the neighbourhoods of Sunnyside and Eau Claire. Normally, you can use this bridge to cross the Bow River on foot or by bike, but during the maintenance next week, you will need to detour. Watch out for detour signage.
