The City of Edmonton’s 3.3 km LRT expansion was on track to wrap up major construction by the end of 2013. Three stations are being designed as part of the extension: MacEwan Station, Kingsway Station, and NAIT Station, linking the city’s rapid transit system to Grant McEwan University, the Royal Alexandra Hospital, and the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT). The new line will connect to the existing LRT at Churchill station downtown via a tunnel, and is expected increase daily ridership by 45,000.

This project is the first step in a plan that will ultimately see the LRT extended to the City’s northwestern limits near St. Albert. The line is expected to be operational by April 2014.
