Capital Line LRT

What's this for?
At a minimum it is to finish off the crossover installation north of Belvedere. Traction poles have gone in, but EPCOR needs to go in and move catenary around, pull out at least 1 old traction pole that sits in the middle of the crossovers, and then install catenary for the crossover. Then the crossover needs to be completed. The crossover at 129 Ave also needs to be removed, which could be part of these shutdowns.
ETS might then take advantage of the shutdowns for other work.
 
City names preferred bidder for Capital Line South LRT construction​

April 2, 2024

The City of Edmonton has selected its preferred bidder to design and build Phase 1 of the Capital Line South Extension from Century Park to just north of Ellerslie Road.

The preferred bidder is Capital Line Design-Builders, consisting of team members Ledcor and AECOM.

The City will now enter into negotiations with Capital Line Design-Builders with the goal of awarding the contract by the end of May 2024.

Construction of the 4.5-kilometre extension is scheduled to begin later this year. Construction is expected to take four to five years, followed by testing and commissioning.

“We’d like to thank the bidding teams for participating in our procurement. We’re confident our fair and rigorous competitive process will ensure Phase 1 of the Capital Line South Extension will result in excellent value for Edmontonians and further strengthen our mass transit network,” said Bruce Ferguson, Branch Manager of LRT Expansion and Renewal with the City of Edmonton.

The City launched its Capital Line South procurement process in June 2022 and shortlisted two bidders in March 2023. Both bidders provided technical submissions, including draft designs and plans, to demonstrate their ability to meet the City’s rigorous technical requirements. Both bidders passed and were invited to submit a financial proposal. The City evaluated these proposals to ensure they met financial requirements, and the team with the highest combined technical and financial score was selected as the preferred bidder.

Transformational infrastructure projects like Capital Line South play a key role in strengthening our economy and expanding sustainable travel options for Edmontonians. An economic assessment of the project estimates construction will generate $330 million in wages in Alberta and another $100 million throughout the country. The project is expected to generate 3,700 jobs in the province and another 1,700 across Canada.

The $1.1-billion project has funding commitments from the Government of Canada, the Government of Alberta and the City of Edmonton.

I figured they would get the bid. Mobilization likely won’t occur till late Q3 or Q4.
 
I never said there was. Although if you look at the business case in June 2021, it predicted that major construction would start Q2 2022. Sad to see how far behind this project is.
Yeah I don't really know how you can suggest a design-build project of this magnitude, that hadn't even entered procurement stage at this point, would begin major construction within a year.

That said, the City approved the prelim design for the Century Park -> Ellerslie extension in 2010. This entire project has been behind schedule for over a decade now.
 
Underpass. Probably exactly what will happen to University Ave.
Was it ever suggested that this would happen to University Ave? I'm all for that. And sorry do you mean the tracks go under the road or the road goes under the tracks?
 
I recall an option to go under University Ave, but it was considered unnecessary and cut.
