Construction

The first phase of the Green Line LRT project is the largest LRT project to be constructed in our City’s history.

Phase 1 will connect the southeast to downtown and into the existing Red and Blue lines and four MAX BRT routes and will build:

  • 13 stations
  • 18 km of LRT track
  • 3 park and ride facilities at Shepard, Douglas Glen and Lynwood/Millican stations
  • 1 km of elevated track between 26 Avenue S.E. station and Inglewood/Ramsay station
  • 3 km of tunnel under Beltline and Downtown (6 Street S.E. along 11 Avenue to 2 Street S.W. at the planned Eau Claire Promenade)
  • 4 LRT bridge structures that span across the Elbow River, Bow River, Deerfoot Trail and Blackfoot Trail
  • 1 LRV maintenance and storage facility

With the alignment of our funding partners, the Green Line Board announced that Council approved Stage 1 alignment of the Green Line LRT will be procured and built in two phases from Shepard to Eau Claire in Phase 1 and from Eau Claire to 16 Avenue N in Phase 2.  As part of the approved stage gate process, the Green Line Board will assess the risk and resources available before Phase 2 work will begin. 

Beltline and Downtown Utility Relocation Project

Work has started to move shallow and deep embedded utilities like water and electricity lines to make way for the main Green Line LRT construction.
