My first attempt at a video of my drive from downtown to the southside.
Thank you for this. I am surprised that there is only 1 lane of vehicle traffic on so much of the roads: up Connors Hill, along the Strath route and down 75th. Is it busy during rush hour or where has all the traffic gone?

@Edmcowboy11 great vid, cool muzac and transitions.

The bump up on the hoarding/covers over the crosswalks by the Avonmore stop on 83 st is pretty severe hey.
Also, it's nice to see the walkway and right turn lane is basically completed at 83/Argyll, finally.

Great job Paul, can't wait for part 2.

Oh yeah, it's something else alright haha. It's not so bad as long as you slow down for it enough. I learned that the hard way though...

This afternoon.
They are coming along, but so much left to do, especially top-of-bank stuff. I hope they can finish this year?

Downtown Edmonton
Only Transit center on Ellerslie road would feed Century Park. A new transit center around Ellerslie and 50 street probably could be a good thing.
The Walker NSP does have plans for a Park and Ride/Transit Centre at 50 ST and Ellerslie. So I imagine it will likely have a feeder bus to the Valley Line in about... 10 years.

Seemed like they had an excessive amount of cones lining the track too 😂

Don't think I've seen this question posed or answered here: is there a reason that the Mill Woods/Downtown passenger stations are staggered rather than put across from each other. Seems the later would have some cost benefits.
