This bridge is a beauty - Calgary's prettiest for sure. And very handy for anybody trying to get around in the inner city. The lower deck is a 2 lane short cut from Riverfront Avenue to Memorial Drive - just watch your vehicle height, and pay attention to the traffic direction signs - there are lane reversals in place. The upper deck has 4 lanes that also are under some lane reversals during both the morning and evening rush hour, so pay careful attention to the lights. There are also 2 nice pedestrian / cycle sidewalks which connect not only north and south Calgary here, but form excellent connectors for those doing downtown walking loops. Heritage, but 100% helpful today.

The Centre Street bridge in Calgary was over engineered at the time and has recently had renovations to make it ready for another century. The bridge still has iconic lions as decorations.

I visited down town Calgary and wondered upon this beautiful attraction. If you are in the area, I recommend you stop by and check it out for yourself.

Centre Street Bridge has two levels of traffic. The lower deck is narrow and of limited height with an entrance and exit being confusing both to locals and visitors. Frequently motorists with larger vehicles get stuck. The upper level is normal to traffic and has better views. The lions are interesting.

When I see 'just a bridge' I am dismayed ... I see a beautiful, strong, arched piece of work crossing over the magnificent Bow River .. The Lions are from a bygone era ( we know they aren't the originals due to decay.. But the originals are somewhere in a building downtown being kept safe - we hope)
Depending on the season, I can see so many different vistas with the mighty Bow River & the strong, graceful 'lioned' bridge keeping one another company.... Just a bridge - I think not ..
