Metro Line and system-wide LRT closures to affect Edmonton


The city is planning to do testing and commissioning work for the Metro Line alternative signaling system over the next couple of days, meaning LRT service will be disrupted between Feb. 25-28.

The Metro Line will be closed on Feb. 25 and 26, and on Feb. 27 and 28, both the Capital Line and Metro Line will be closed.

"Customers may still see trains running, but trains will not be picking up or dropping off passengers," the city said in a news release, which includes full details about alternative bus service during the disruptions.

The switch to the new signaling system could be as soon as March 1.
