Work is now underway in the River Valley. This Frequently Asked Questions document answers important recurring questions about changes and impacts to this area brought about by the introduction of the Valley Line LRT.

Public input played a major role in determining the route for the Valley Line and how the new LRT would fit into the neighbourhoods it serves. Learn more about how public input was used and is still being used in the Valley Line project.

About the Project

The Valley Line LRT is a 27 km low-floor, urban line that will run from Mill Woods to Lewis Farms, crossing through Downtown. The Valley Line will be built in multiple stages, with the 13 km southeast portion being built first.

Phase one of the Valley Line will run from Downtown to Mill Woods, and will feature:

  • 11 street-level stops.
  • An elevated station with a 1,400-spot Park and Ride facility and a full transit centre located in the Wagner industrial area.
  • The new Tawatinâ Bridge across North Saskatchewan River.
  • A short tunnel from the north face of the River Valley through to the Quarters redevelopment.
  • An interchange point at Churchill Square to access the existing Metro and Capital LRT lines.

The southeast portion of the Valley Line has a capital cost of $1.8 billion, and will be delivered as a public-private partnership (P3).

Construction will begin this year, with the line scheduled to open to the public by the end of 2020.
