Preliminary engineering of the line was completed July 2009 and construction of the phase from the MacEwan Station to NAIT began in the summer of 2011. The station is set to open in late June 2014.
NAIT Station is an at-grade station with a centre platform. Unlike the other LRT stations in Edmonton, the platform at NAIT Station will only accommodate three-car trains. This is because it is a temporary station.
