Officials at the City of Calgary have confirmed that approximately $100 million has already been spent in preparation of the Green Line LRT.

According to an article from the CBC, the initial investment has focused on land acquisition and pre-design work associated with the new light rail transit system.

The proposed $4.5 billion project, #11 on the 2017 Top100 Projects report, already has $3 billion in funding committed by the federal and municipal governments. However, the province has yet to determine what funding it will provide.

In April of 2016 the project team unveiled five options for the new line, however a final decision has not been made on which option will move forward, or whether the entire project will be built all at once. A decision on both is expected by the end of 2017.
