EDMONTON — Crews will complete demolition and track renewal work at Edmonton’s Stadium LRT station this summer according to a City of Edmonton release.
The work will necessitate changes in train schedules, including Capital and Metro Line trains running every 20 minutes From June 28 until Aug. 1 while crews work on the southbound track near Stadium, resulting in a 20-minute frequency between Churchill and Clareview, and between Churchill and NAIT. Frequency will be every 10 minutes from Churchill to Century Park.
From Aug. 2 until late-August, Capital and Metro Line trains will run every 15 minutes while crews work on the northbound track near Stadium, resulting in a 15-minute frequency between Churchill and Clareview, and between Churchill and NAIT. Frequency will average every 7.5 minutes from Churchill to Century Park.
“We understand that these frequency changes may inconvenience some transit riders this summer, but this work is an important step forward in the Stadium LRT Station Redevelopment. This track renewal work will also allow our trains to run more efficiently in northeast Edmonton and provide a better customer experience,” LRT operations and maintenance director Craig McKeown said in a statement.
The construction is part of the City of Edmonton’s TLC for LRT program of station renewal, which also includes overnight construction work on the McKernan/Belgravia Station for approximately one to two weeks as crews complete platform renewal work. The station is scheduled to reopen in mid-July.
Future projects and schedules will be added to edmonton.ca/tlcforlrt as they are finalized.
