Bridges named in honour of fallen police officers


Two bridges in Edmonton are being named in honour of fallen Edmonton police officers Constable Travis Jordan and Constable Brett Ryan.

Two bridges on southwest Anthony Henday Drive over the North Saskatchewan River between Terwilliger Drive and Maskekosihk Trail in Edmonton are being dedicated in honour of Constable Travis Jordan and Constable Brett Ryan of the Edmonton Police Service who died in the line of duty on March 16, 2023.


“We are deeply saddened by the loss of Constable Jordan and Constable Ryan who sacrificed their lives protecting the citizens of Edmonton just over a year ago. The naming of these bridges in the city in which they served will honour the memory of these two brave police officers.”

Devin Dreeshen, Minister of Transportation and Economic Corridors


"Our province will forever be deeply grateful for the sacrifice and commitment of Constable Jordan and Constable Ryan. To the families and friends of these fallen officers, may this bridge renaming honour your loved ones for generations to come as heroes who had the courage to protect our community."
