Energization of Overhead Wires on the Valley Line Southeast LRT

EDMONTON, AB – July 9, 2021 – Starting on or about Monday, July 12th, 2021, the overhead wires for the Valley Line Southeast LRT along 66 Street between Whitemud Drive and 41 Avenue, and along 75 Street between Roper Road and Whitemud Drive, will be permanently energized. Energization of this segment means that Light Rail Vehicle (LRV) testing will be occurring, intermittently, in this area.  Testing is already underway to the south (along 66 Street from 28 Avenue to 41 Avenue). 

As construction progresses, the overhead wires are gradually being energized in each area of the 13-kilometre alignment beginning in Mill Woods and ending in Downtown. 

For your safety, overhead wires should always be considered energized when strung from power pole to power pole.
