Project Overview As part of the Valley Line West LRT project, EPCOR is responsible for relocating all the power, water and sewer utilities avoid potential conflicts with the Valley Line West LRT infrastructure.
This is the second stage of the Valley Line, an urban-style 27 km line that will operate between Mill Woods in southeast Edmonton and Lewis Farms in west Edmonton.
To meet the overall LRT project schedule, the City has requested that EPCOR perform the utility relocations within specific areas along the alignment prior to LRT construction.
The first area identified for utility relocations is on 87 Avenue from 165 Street to 170 Street.
What’s Happening? EPCOR Drainage needs to relocate large storm and sanitary sewer trunks along 87 Avenue from 165 Street to 170 Street.
Part of the relocation construction will include approximately 300m open cut excavation and removal of the concrete island on 87 Avenue.
All affected landscaping, pavements, sidewalks and alleyways will be restored to their original condition.
Residents may experience dust, and general noise as a number of construction equipment and trucks will be used for drilling, material delivery, excavation, soil removal and surface restoration.
