Southeast LRT Planning Study

Edmonton, AB

In the context of strong economic and population growth, the City of Edmonton sought to expand their Light Rail Transit (LRT) network. ISL provided Land Use Planning and GIS/Mapping services to support the development of concept plans for a preferred LRT alignment between Mill Woods and Downtown.

Two Phases

Carried out in two phases, the team identified and screened the alternative LRT route alignments, helping determine the ultimate route from Downtown to Mill Woods.

Current and Planned Land Uses

The final report included a review of land use plans, municipal population and employment growth forecasts and a composite image of current and planned neighbourhood land use.

Activity Centres

Activity centres and neighbourhood nodes were identified for possible station locations, and alternative alignments were evaluated against route-based and station-based land use criteria using GIS analysis.
