The LRT alignment will be north of Highway 174 east of Blair Station, extending along the existing Transitway alignment, passing under Blair Road and the interchange ramps. The rail line will then transition into the median of the highway by crossing above the westbound highway lanes, west of Montreal Road. It will remain at grade in the centre median to Trim Road.
The dual LRT tracks will offer stops at five new stations: Montreal Station, Jeanne d’Arc, Orléans Boulevard, Place d’Orléans, and Trim, which will all be located within the median.
