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 in 2013, construction on the line could begin as early as 2015.
