The Edmonton Valley Line LRT is a new 13 km long LRT line that extends from 102 Street to the Mill Woods Town Centre. Along the alignment there are 11 at‐grade neighborhood stops and one above‐grade station at Davies Station. Davies Station is an important destination along the Project alignment because it offers access to a Park and Ride facility (approximately 1,400 parking stalls) as well as a transit centre. Key structures of the Project include a tunnel connecting downtown Edmonton to the River Valley (approximately 0.5 km), a new River Bridge crossing the North Saskatchewan River (the Tawatinâ Bridge) and an Operations and Maintenance Facility (the Gerry Wright Operations and Maintenance Facility “OMF”).
The Valley Line LRT will operate separately from the City’s other existing LRT lines, including the Capital Line and the Metro Line. The Project will use low‐floor technology and does not intersect with the City’s existing high‐floor LRT system. The new low‐floor technology defines the Project as a more urban‐style system with small‐scale stops that will integrate more seamlessly into established neighborhoods than the high‐floor alternative. The duration of the project is 58 months
