The Valley Line is the largest single infrastructure project in the history of Edmonton. It consists of a 27-kilometre low-floor urban line running from Mill Woods to Lewis Farms that crosses downtown. It will be separate from the city’s existing high-floor LRT system. This line will feature modern, low-floor, light-rail vehicles running segregated along existing streets and integrating with Edmonton’s surrounding neighbourhoods. The 13.1-kilometre southeast section from Mill Woods to 102 Street (Stage 1) is currently being delivered as a Design-Build-Finance-Vehicles-Operations-Maintenance P3 (public-private partnership). Target service commencement is scheduled for Dec. 15, 2020.
