The city of Calgary says the 9 Ave. bridge connecting Inglewood and Ramsay to East Village has reached the end of its useful life and is due for replacement this year.
Digging (somewhat) deep into the archives for this 2008 image of the 12th Street Bridge in Calgary’s Inglewood neighbourhood … or I should say the old bridge, as this structure was removed from its pilings last month. The bridge, which connected Inglewood with the Calgary Zoo, was damaged in the 2013 flood and a replacement is in the process of being built.
This striking structure is part of Tillikum Crossing, the newest bridge across the Willamette River in Portland, Oregon. Opened to traffic in fall 2015, it’s reserved for use by MAX light rail Orange Line trains, Portland Streetcars, cyclists and pedestrians. It is the first bridge of this sort in the United States, according to TriMet.
