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 2 stages.
Valley Line West
Downtown to Lewis Farms
Over the past 2 years, the project team has been working to update the 2013 preliminary design for Valley Line West based on public feedback and changes to design guidelines, City policies and land use along the corridor. The project is now moving toward construction.
Through the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Plan, the Government of Canada is providing approximately $948 million for the Valley Line West LRT, adding to the approximately $1.04 billion funding commitment from the Government of Alberta in November 2018.
The Valley Line West LRT project has entered into procurement phase which involves undertaking a rigorous competitive process to select a team who can effectively deliver the project.
It will take about 1 year to select a contractor for the Valley Line West LRT project, and another 5 to 6 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 2021.
