Calgary’s new Peace Bridge carries pedestrians and bicyclers into the city center from the surrounding suburbs.
Bicycle traffic occupies two lanes in the center of the bridge and pedestrian walkways run parallel on either side.
Inground LED fixtures accent the walkway curbs. The linear aspect of the bridge is reinforced by two symmetrical lines of light. The first is a series of linear fluorescent T5HO luminaires integrated into the base of the pedestrian handrail. The second is a custom-length cathode light strip with opaque acrylic sleeves in the bridge canopy.
An IP65-rated 26W compact fluorescent floodlight is mounted at the centerpoint of the bottom chord of the structure to uplight the underside of the bridge.
