City seeks input on Valley Line West LRT crossing
*Engagement session to look at 178 St/87 Ave intersection
The second stage of the Valley Line — a 14 km light-rail extension that will be built between downtown and Lewis Farms — is a top priority infrastructure project. Valley Line West will play an integral role in achieving the City’s vision for sustainable transportation that will help connect Edmonton’s communities.
Preliminary engineering for Valley Line West was completed in 2013 and the City is now ready to review and refine the design. This an important step, as it will acknowledge any changes that have occurred since the original work was done and will position the project for construction when additional funding becomes available.
The review includes the assessment of the high-volume intersection at 178 Street/87 Avenue, to ensure the crossing planned for the intersection is still appropriate.
The City is hosting a public engagement session to hear from residents — particularly those who live, work and commute in and through the area — on any issues and opportunities to consider for the crossing assessment. The drop-in style engagement session will take place:
Date: Thursday, June 29
Time: 6:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Location: Aldergrove Community Hall, 8535 – 182 Street Map
