Drivers on a busy section of Hurontario Street in north Mississauga can expect delays due to daily lane reductions for the next two months as crews lay down tracks and complete other work for the $1.4-billion Hazel McCallion light-rail transit (LRT) route.

Project leaders overseeing the massive Mississauga-to-Brampton transit initiative say track work is progressing to Eglinton Avenue along Hurontario Street and that motorists in that area can expect daily lane reductions from Oct. 19 until Dec. 18.

Officials with Metrolinx, the provincial agency in charge of the Hazel McCallion Line LRT project, also remind motorists and area residents that traffic delays and extra noise can be expected this coming weekend along Hurontario Street in south Mississauga.

As crews complete storm infrastructure work for the LRT line in the area around Hurontario Street and Park Street, south of the QEW, additional noise and traffic backups are likely to be part of the equation from this Thursday at 10 p.m. until Monday (Oct. 23) at 10 p.m.

During that period, there will be a northbound lane restriction on Hurontario Street and a temporary closure of Park Street where it meets Hurontario Street.

When completed and open to passengers in fall 2024, the Hazel McCallion Line will whisk riders as far as 18 kilometres from Port Credit GO Station in south Mississauga to Brampton, via Hurontario Street.

Running between Peel’s two cities, the route will feature 19 stops along the way. It will also connect with other transit services, including MiWay and Brampton Transit.
