The TransEd team achieved financial close in February to finance, design, supply vehicles, build, operate, and maintain Stage 1 for the City of Edmonton.

The Valley Line LRT is designed to meet the demands of Canada’s second fastest-growing city that is expected to increase in size by 50 percent by 2040. Today’s groundbreaking event was attended by the mayor of Edmonton and Canadian state ministers.

“From the start of this project, Bechtel and TransEd Partners have enjoyed a very positive partnership with the City of Edmonton and the community,” said Larry Melton, Bechtel’s design-build project director for TransEd Partners.

“We are looking forward to delivering a safe, efficient, and sustainable transit line that will support the creation of hundreds of local jobs during peak construction and help drive economic growth for the region”.
