The Cloverdale Footbridge will soon be no more.

The bridge is being removed and demolished in nine sections over the next several days, depending on the weather.

Components of the bridge will be recycled.

In preparation for the removal of the footbridge and the construction of new Tawatinâ Bridge, berms have been constructed in the North Saskatchewan River to hold two 300-ton cranes.

Work on the bridge will continue seven days a week between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. Monday to Saturday and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sundays.

The Tawatinâ Bridge is expected to be completed in 2019 with the Valley Line LRT services beginning in December 2020.
