A Second Footbridge Over the Bow River

The Nancy Pauw Bridge is set in the heart of Banff, spanning the Bow River to connect Central Park to the Banff Recreation Grounds. The bridge will create an iconic connection between these two important elements of social infrastructure in the Town, in addition to becoming a destination in its own right – giving Banff residents and visitors alike a new way to experience the beauty of the Bow River and Rocky Mountain vistas.

Like its sister bridge downstream, the Nancy Pauw Bridge will be an 80m clear span over the Bow River. The structure will be an extremely shallow, pure arch, created with stepped Glulam girders and weathering steel haunches. The bridge will be prefabricated and assembled into large segments and lifted into place from the shore.

This will be the third pedestrian bridge that StructureCraft has designed and built for the Town of Banff following the Bow River Pedestrian Bridge and the Legacy Trail Footbridge in 2013.

Site work is expected to begin in the fall of 2021, with completion anticipated fall 2022. Stay tuned for more updates! Read more from the Town of Banff on the Nancy Pauw Bridge here.
