Extended downtown road closures coming for sewer repairs and paving in Brampton

The city is reminding residents headed downtown over the next month to plan ahead as construction projects will see major road closures at Brampton’s Four Corners several for weeks.

The Region of Peel will be tearing up and replacing aging watermains and sanitary sewers in downtown Brampton starting next Monday (Aug. 14), closing Main St. and Queen St. to all vehicle traffic.

The closures will last until Sept. 8 and all vehicles will be rerouted to the next major intersection to avoid disruptions to those living on residential streets near the worksite. The city also says it is working to reduce the impact of the construction and detours on local businesses and downtown residents while the work is underway.

There will still be access for pedestrians and emergency services will remain open, and planned festivals and events at Garden Square will still be going ahead “with minimal impact,” according to the city.

Here’s what you need to know about the downtown road closures and how they will impact getting around Brampton this summer:

Brampton Farmers’ Market

During Saturday Farmers’ Markets, one southbound lane on Main St. from south of Nelson St. to north of Wellington St. will reopen for access by Brampton and GO Transit only. The route will be open and running from 6:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Construction will be shut down during the following city events:

• Garden Square events (Aug. 16, 18, 19, 23, 25, 26, 30 and September 1, 2 from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.)
• Party in the Lanes at McArter and Vivian Lanes (Aug. 18 from 6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.)
• Live Art Competition (Aug. 19 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.)

• Market Square Parking Garage (Theatre Lane & Union St.)
• John St. Parking Garage (16 John St.)
