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 first stage of the project is the 13.1-kilometre southeast section from Mill Woods to 102 Street. Construction is progressing on all areas of the project, with target service commencement scheduled for December 15, 2020. However, the project has hit delays, and will now be operational sometime in 2021.
