111 Street is a major arterial road in south Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The south leg of the LRT runs between the northbound and southbound lanes north of 23 Avenue. It passes by Southgate Centre and the former location of Heritage Mall,[2] now the location of the Century Park transit-oriented development.

111 Street was originally part of the 1963 Metro Edmonton Transportation Study (METS), which proposed a downtown freeway loop and feeder routes, including three southern approaches from Highway 2 via 111 Street, Calgary Trail, and 91 Street / Mill Creek Ravine.[3] As 111 Street was constructed, a wide right-of-way was integrated; however the freeway plan was ultimately cancelled. In the 2000s, the LRT Capital Line was expanded and constructed along the median and opened in 2010.[4]
