EDMONTON – The City of Edmonton has awarded a design-build contract for phase one of the Capital Line South Extension project from Century Park to north of Ellerslie Road to Capital Line Design-Build Ltd.

Capital Line Design-Build Ltd. is a member of the Ledcor Group of Companies, with AECOM as their design partner.

“Building on Ledcor’s 75-year legacy of serving Edmontonians, we are thrilled to be chosen by the City of Edmonton, with our design partner AECOM, to construct this vital new phase of public transit which will serve the city’s growing population for many decades to come. With passion and dedication, we will deliver a successful project, ensuring safety every step of the way,” said Lecor Group senior vice-president of infrastructure Brad Mytko in a statement.

Over the coming months, the Ledcor team will begin detailed design with major construction along 111 Street anticipated to begin in 2025, a release said.

Phase one is a 4.5-kilometre, high-floor LRT extension along the west side of 111 Street and includes an LRT underpass at 23rd Ave., two bridges across Blackmud Creek and Anthony Henday Drive, the Twin Brooks station and Heritage Valley North station and an operations and maintenance facility.

Ledcor was selected as the preferred bidder in April and contract negotiations between the city and the preferred bidder occurred throughout April and May, the release said.
