The Town of Okotoks has many new construction and infrastructure projects. This includes the completion of multi-phased projects started in previous years and the planning of new multi-phased projects that will enhance the Town’s roadways, utilities, buildings, and recreational parks and facilities. We know that construction can impact residents and businesses and we thank you for your patience while we complete this work.
Construction Projects & Notifications
In support of the Town’s Flood Response Plan, a bridge will be constructed between the top of the Woodhaven escarpment to the Water Treatment Plant (WTP). The purpose of this grant-funded project is to provide EPCOR personnel with uninterrupted access to the WTP during major flood events. Uninterrupted access to the WTP is critical as it supplies all of the treated water for the town.
The scope of this project includes the construction of the new bridge, reconstruction of the pathway, and landscaping restoration. To accommodate the new bridge, a short section of the pathway system will be realigned as generally shown below.
The bridge construction is anticipated to begin in the spring and be completed in 2018. Some pathway closures will be required during this work.

The Laurie Boyd Pedestrian Bridge is the primary pedestrian connection to the pathway network in the river valley from the north side of town. To enhance active transportation for users, the bridge will be replaced this summer. The existing bridge is expected to remain open for the majority of the construction.

The new bridge infrastructure will include:
- A much wider bridge deck accommodating greater access and various modes of active transportation (e.g. a double-wide stroller)
- Lighting and a shallower bridge camber (arch) for better visibility and easier access
- Increased load allowance to support maintenance and emergency vehicles
