About the Project

The Valley Line (Southeast to West Light Rail Transit) 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 27 km 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. During the Preliminary Design stage from February 2012 to November 2013, public engagement helped shape the design philosophy and aesthetic for the Valley Line LRT, providing the City of Edmonton with invaluable knowledge about the communities the LRT will eventually serve.

On March 11, 2014, at an event in Churchill Station, the provincial government announced its funding commitment to the Southeast portion of Valley Line LRT Project. With the final funding piece in place--pending Council's approval of the overall funding strategy--the 13 km Valley Line (Mill Woods to Downtown) is now free to proceed. Thanks in part to timely commitments by our provincial and federal partners, the Valley Line will remain on schedule for a construction start of 2016, aiming to be open to the public by the end of 2020.

The province has agreed to contribute $250 million in Green Trip funding, $150 million in additional funding, and $200 million in a 10-year interest free loan. This joins the City's own contribution of $800 million, along with the federal government's contribution of $250 million from PPP Canada and an expected $150 million through the Building Canada Fund.
