Construction work on the Stadium LRT Station Redevelopment project
will require some partial LRT closures in April, as crews start working on the new overhead canopy. As a result, no trains will be running between Churchill and Clareview during the following times:
- April 2 until end of service on April 4
- April 9 (starting at 6 p.m.) until end of service on April 11
- April 16 (starting at 6 p.m.) until end of service on April 18
During these times, LRT replacement buses will run every 8 minutes between Clareview and Corona stations using bus stops with red “LRT Replacement” signs
. LRT will run every 15 minutes between Century Park and NAIT.
Also, during the early hours of April 2, crews will start removing the elevator at Stadium Station. For those customers who normally use the elevator at Stadium Station, a shuttle service between Stadium and Coliseum Transit Centres will be available starting 5 a.m. on April 5. To access the shuttle, transit customers can call or text 825-993-0555. During the upcoming partial LRT closures (see above), transit customers will use LRT replacement buses instead of the shuttle. The stairs and escalator that connect the underground concourse to the Stadium Station platform remain open.
Crews are prioritizing the building of ramps to enhance accessibility at the station and ramp access to the Stadium Station platform is expected to be available by this June.
The Stadium LRT Station Redevelopment project
began in May 2020. Last year, crews started demolition of the station building and construction of the new platform. Other improvements include new heated shelters, new public washrooms and a new security office.
Edmonton’s 40-plus year-old LRT network needs maintenance and upgrades to ensure it continues serving Edmontonians reliably and efficiently for the long-term. TLC for LRT helps LRT customers plan their commutes during these projects.
More impacts related to this work and other major maintenance/revitalization projects will be announced in April and this summer. Up-to-date information will be provided at edmonton.ca/tlcforlrt
