Trans Mountain hosted an information session for our neighbours in the Edmonton area on August 27, 2019, to discuss our construction plans for the region.

The event was a great opportunity to highlight the activities expected to get underway soon and answer questions from residents and businesses.

Trans Mountain and its contractors shared information about the Project and heard from attendees about topics of interest, such as construction impacts and mitigation, timelines and construction notifications.

Trans Mountain is committed to continue engaging with communities along the expanded pipeline route before, during and after construction. 

On August 21, 2019, Trans Mountain announced that construction work will soon begin in communities along the route, including along the right-of-way in Alberta between Edmonton and Edson, and in the Greater Edmonton area. Specific start dates in the remaining construction areas are subject to final regulatory approvals and permits.

Construction of the Trans Mountain Expansion Project in the Greater Edmonton area includes approximately 50 km of pipeline; one pump station; and the addition of four new storage tanks at Edmonton Terminal. In this region, the pipeline is being routed through urban areas and through Edmonton’s Transportation Utility Corridor where possible. Pipeline construction will follow conventional construction techniques, and horizontal directional drills will also be used in several areas to help minimize impacts and disruptions.
