About the Project

The Valley Line LRT is a 27 km low-floor, urban line that will operate between Mill Woods in southeast Edmonton and Lewis Farms in west Edmonton.

The project is being built in two stages.

Valley Line West

102 Street downtown and Lewis Farms Transit Centre

In 2016, the Valley Line West received funding through the Government of Canada’s Public Transit Infrastructure Fund (PTIF) to update the preliminary design that was completed in 2013. The funding also covers work to determine the most appropriate project delivery method (P3, for example) and to develop a business case for construction funding. This work will position the City to be procurement ready when new funding becomes available.

While there are no timelines for additional funding, the City hopes to be ready to initiate the procurement phase as early as 2018. Once additional funding is secured, it is anticipated it would take about one year to select a contractor for the Valley Line West and another five years to complete construction.

Valley Line Southeast 

102 Street downtown and Mill Woods Town Centre

The Valley Line Southeast is currently under construction. The project is being delivered as a Public-Private Partnership (P3). In 2016, TransEd Partners was selected to complete design, build and operate the Valley Line Southeast. The new line is expected to open to the public by the end of 2020.
