Southwest Edmonton will be home to a permanent Park & Ride at the northwest corner of Ellerslie Road and 127 Street.

About the Project

Project Lifecycle Design

The new integrated transit facility will include a future LRT station on the Capital Line South LRT Extension, a transit centre, and the Park & Ride.

The site has been designed to simplify transit to transit connections, and will include cycle and pedestrian links into nearby neighbourhoods. The original site layout was also recently modified to include space for potential future Transit Oriented Development (TOD), west of the future LRT line. The Park & Ride will ultimately accommodate approximately 1,900 parking stalls.

February 5, 2018 - Tree Removal

As part of this project, tree removal is required to accommodate the construction of a storm sewer. The storm sewer will connect a new storm pond to the existing MacEwan outlet, and will require clearing a strip of trees approximately 30 meters wide prior to the spring of 2018. The impacted trees are within the existing forested area east of 127 Street and south of Anthony Henday Drive.

Date: Week of February 5, 2018

Where We Are

Detailed design of the Park & Ride is currently underway, with construction of Phase 1 anticipated to begin in 2018 (subject to land acquisition). 

The first phase of construction will include:

  • Edmonton Transit Service (ETS) bus transit centre building
  • Park & Ride to accommodate up to 1,100 stalls
  • Stormwater Management Facility (pond)

Future expansion of the Park & Ride lot will be undertaken based on service demands and funding availability. The site has been designed to minimize service impacts during any future expansion, as well as the integration of future LRT and Transit Oriented Development.

History

In July 2008, City Council approved the Concept Plan for the South LRT (Capital Line) Extension from Century Park to the south city limit (41 Avenue SW). The plan defines the alignment (where the track fits in the roadway) and station locations, including a station north of Ellerslie Road.

The site for a permanent Park & Ride on the northwest corner of Ellerslie Road and 127 Street was recommended as part of the preliminary design of the Capital Line South LRT Extension to Ellerslie Road, and was approved by City Council in April 2009.

In the fall of 2016, the Heritage Valley Park & Ride was approved by the federal government as eligible for Public Transit Infrastructure Funding (PTIF.)
