The City of Cambridge is currently working on the Grand River Pedestrian Bridge and East Walkway Improvements project. The pedestrian bridge supports a number of City policies, guidelines and master plans.
To learn more, view the Public Information Centre (PIC) Presentation.
The proposed pedestrian bridge links the east and west sides of the Grand River. The bridge will also improve connections to existing pedestrian walkways built in the late 1980.
Improvements to the existing east walkways will connect the pedestrian bridge to sidewalks along Water Street South and Grand Avenue South. These changes will also meet requirements of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).
The bridge's foundations will be behind the existing floodwalls and will use the existing pier in the river. Pre-engineered, the bridge will be installed in two sections from the shore and will be 102 metres long.
