Elbow River Bridges – Update for Discovery Ridge
August 18, 2017
Concerns have been raised with the design of the bridge through the Elbow River Valley by some residents of Discovery Ridge. These concerns are largely related to the potential for flooding should another 2013-level flood take place. Alberta Transportation wants to reassure the community that in no case does the community of Discovery Ridge receive a back-water flooding effect due to the currently proposed bridge design.
