You know what they say–you have to crack some eggs to make an omelette.

And in this case, the omelette is shaping up to be pretty delicious.

This year, the city launched construction of the upcoming Light Rail Transit system (better known as the Hurontario LRT project).

The LRT, a $1.4 billion higher-order transit project being carried out by Metrolinx, will span 20 km and run from Port Credit GO at Lakeshore Rd. in the south to the Brampton Gateway Terminal at Steeles Ave in the north. The LRT will boast 22 stops and provide connections to the Port Credit and Cooksville GO stations, Mississauga Transitway, MiWay and Zum transit lines.

Metrolinx recently announced that more construction is or will be underway on one of the city’s major streets.

What’s coming up soon?

The Enbridge Gas distribution line relocation, which will take place from Hurontario Street from John Street

To accommodate the construction of the Hurontario LRT, Enbridge is required to install a new gas line on Hurontario Street between John Street and Dundas Street.

According to Metrolinx, work is scheduled to start in early November, and will last for approximately five months.

Work will shut down starting December 21, 2018 for the holidays, and will resume on January 7, 2019. Metrolinx says work will occur between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m., Monday to

Work could be rescheduled and delayed due to weather conditions or any unforeseen circumstances.

While Metrolinx says that every effort will be made to minimize disruptions and that access to properties will be maintained at all times through at least one driveway, residents and businesses near the work site can expect to hear noise caused by trucks, excavators, backhoes, and other construction equipment related to this work.

During construction hours, lane reductions will be required on Hurontario Street between John Street and Dundas Street. At a minimum, one north and southbound lane will be maintained at all times.

Traffic delays are expected.

Transit users should note that due to lane reductions along Hurontario Street between John Street and Dundas Street, delays can be expected on MiWay Routes 1, 19, 101, 103.

Delays can also be expected on GO Bus routes servicing Cooksville GO station.

Pedestrians are asked to take care when travelling near construction areas and to watch for signage indicating necessary detours.

Sidewalk access in the area could be affected.
