Valley Line Southeast LRT to finally open for Edmonton passengers after nearly 3-year delay

Nearly three years after it was originally supposed to open for Edmonton passengers, the long-delayed Valley Line Southeast LRT line finally has a firm date to open, the city announced Tuesday.

In a news release, the city said the line will officially open for passenger service on Saturday, Nov. 4. The line will begin running at 5:15 a.m. at the Mill Woods stop and at the 102nd Street stop downtown.

“I know many Edmontonians have been looking forward to opening day for the better part of two decades,” Mayor Amarjeet Sohi said in a statement. “Valley Line Southeast will offer an affordable and climate-friendly choice to move around our city for decades to come.

“I’m looking forward to riding the new line and seeing this project cross the finish line.”

The line had been scheduled to open in December 2020 but has faced multiple delays.
