About the Project

Mackinnon Ravine Pedestrian Trestle Bridge connects pedestrians and cyclists to Stony Plain Road and Summit Drive and is an important link between the communities of Grovenor, Crestwood and the wider Edmonton River Valley trail system.

The MacKinnon Ravine Pedestrian Bridge was closed to the public in October 2021 due to concerns regarding the structure's capacity to hold snow removal equipment safely. The structure was demolished in February 2022. 

A replacement bridge will be constructed in the same location as the previous structure. The new bridge will be constructed to meet current standards and be designed to ensure year-round safety, security and comfort for all users. 
Planning and design for the new bridge is currently underway with construction anticipated to begin in 2023.

An easily accessible alternative path connecting Summit Drive to Stony Plain Road is located along 149 Street.
