Safety Booms to be Installed at Harvie Passage

Harvie Passage - Calgary weirBoaters and water recreationists are reminded that Harvie Passage on the Bow River remains closed to the public.

Calgary’s Harvie Passage sustained significant damage during the 2013 flood and remains closed to boaters and recreationists until repairs are complete.

The Alberta government will install three seasonal safety barriers over the weekend of April 16-17, with support from the Calgary Fire Department. The booms, orange buoys connected by chains spanning the entire width of the passage, are deployed as an added safety precaution to prevent boater access to the passage.

The barriers will be located upstream of the passage near the CP Rail bridge, upstream of the Diversion Headworks and downstream of the Diversion Headworks.
