Valley Line (SE to West LRT): Mill Woods to Lewis Farms
New Naming On The Valley Line LRT
The City of Edmonton Naming Committee has researched and selected LRT Stop, LRT Station, bridge, and facility names for the Southeast portion of the Valley Line LRT. Visit the Naming Committee's website for more information on the Committee's process, or to ask questions.
The Stops, Stations, bridges and facilities on the West portion of the Valley Line LRT will not be given official names until funding is in place and a construction timeline is known.

Valley Line LRT Update
At its August 28 City Council meeting, Council determined it would continue to pursue an advocacy strategy to secure the necessary remaining funds for the successful construction of the Valley Line LRT - Stage 1 (Mill Woods to City Centre) from the City's provincial and federal partners. Council will meet again on December 11 to determine how to proceed on the project.
The City of Edmonton remains committed to the construction of the Valley Line LRT, and will be ready to proceed immediately with the project upon receiving further direction from Council.
About the Project
The Southeast to West LRT (Valley Line) is a low-floor urban line that will run from Mill Woods to Lewis Farms, crossing through downtown. The line runs a total length of 27km and its route has been approved by City Council. Public input helped shape the route, stop/station locations and other details during the Concept Planning phase. The estimated total cost of the line is $3.2 billion.
The project is currently in the preliminary design phase. During this phase, the City will conduct a more detailed analysis of how the LRT will operate, as well as how the system will integrate into the existing and planned transportation network and adjacent communities. This phase is expected to be completed by the end of 2013.
City Council has approved a funding strategy for the Valley Line, starting with the $1.8 billion Mill Woods to Centre West leg. The financing plan depends on cost sharing with the governments of Canada and Alberta. If the remaining funding for this stage is secured by Spring 2014, the line could see construction begin as early as 2016 and be open to the public by 2020.
