Elbow River Traverse

Big, Really Big, New Year

Big, Really Big, New Year

EV master developer CMLC, kicks off 2015 with a look at the exciting year ahead!

2014 was a year chock-full of milestones for East Village. Significant projects like the St. Patrick’s Bridge, the Elbow River Traverse, the Fort Calgary Sentinels and 5th Street Square were all crossed off the to-do list. But if 2014 was a big year for East Village, 2015 is already proving to be even bigger. Way, way bigger, actually. Just how much excitement can be squeezed into one year? Quite a lot, it turns out.

Celebrating the construction of St. Patrick's Bridge

Flag-waving school children, brilliant sunshine and a traditional Blackfoot blessing marked the official opening of St. Patrick’s Bridge this autumn. The long-awaited day was cause for big celebration, and not just because of the unseasonably fine weather. The ribbon cutting ceremony for East Village’s pedestrian and cycling bridge across the Bow River commemorated yet another milestone in a year full of milestones for Calgary’s newest, oldest, coolest, warmest neighbourhood.

Since development began in East Village six years ago, connectivity has been a priority – the 4th St. Underpass opened EV to Stampede Park and Victoria Park, and the St. Patrick’s Island Bridge will soon bring the island and community of Bridgeland within reach. Now the Elbow River Traverse, the smallest of the East Village connectors at approximately 63 meters (just over 200 feet) is about to link downtown Calgary and East Village with the communities of Inglewood and Ramsay to the east. The traverse and accompanying landscaping work began in the spring of 2013 and will be finalized in 2014.
