Appeal halts construction of controversial Calgary ring road bridge

Less than 24 hours after its approval, construction of a contentious ring road overpass has been put on hold. The eleventh-hour stay issued Saturday by Alberta’s Environmental Appeals Board (EAB) puts the brakes on the project’s Elbow River bridge — one that opponents say will irreparably damage adjacent wetlands and pose significant impacts downstream. It’s a cautious victory for those opposed to the river crossing’s current design — a nearly kilometre-long earthen berm spanning the width of the valley, with the river diverted through a bridged 150-metre gap.
