The City of Mississauga’s construction season is underway with projects to repair, maintain and expand Mississauga’s transportation and stormwater infrastructure. This year, there are 21 new projects with an estimated budget of $136.4 million and five projects continuing from 2022.
“As Mississauga continues to grow and mature, ongoing investments in our infrastructure are essential to keeping you moving safely and efficiently through the city and protecting homes and businesses from intense rainfall and flooding,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “I want to thank residents for their patience as this essential work is completed.”
Construction projects planned include road resurfacing, sidewalk and multi-use trail construction and bridge repairs. Construction projects also include erosion control work along creeks, dredging and maintenance of stormwater management ponds and facilities as well as maintaining stormwater infrastructure.
“Our 2022 construction season delivered concrete results and this year will be no different. Our main priorities, especially on our roadways, is the safety of the travelling public, limiting delays and ensuring residents can move as they choose, whether by foot, bike, transit, mobility device or vehicle,” said Geoff Wright, commissioner, transportation and works. “One of our major projects will be taking place along the Collegeway, from Winston Churchill Boulevard to Mississauga Road.
“This project will include pavement rehabilitation, intersection improvements, new traffic signals and street lights, repairs to curbs, sidewalks and catch basins as well as the installation of cycle tracks from Winston Churchill Boulevard to South Millway.”
Construction continues on Metrolinx’s Hurontario Light Rail Transit (HuLRT) project on the Hurontario corridor between the Port Credit GO Station and Highway 407. For the latest updates, visit metrolinx.com/hazelmccallionline.
Through the summer crews will continue to effectively control pests through its Construction Pest Control Program. All construction projects will be assessed on a project-by-project basis to ensure the necessary pest control measures are implemented.
