A tubular, covered bridge for pedestrians and cyclists will span Calgary’s Bow River, according to newly released architectural drawings.

The Peace Bridge’s design by award-winning Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava was posted on the City of Calgary’s website Tuesday.

The footbridge for pedestrians and bicycles will be west of Prince’s Island Park and connect Eau Claire to Sunnyside. It will be just over six metres wide, covered for year-round use and lit at night.

Mayor Dave Bronconnier revealed the name of the $22-million bridge Monday.
