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

Residents, businesses and visitors in downtown Brampton will have to deal with longer road closures now that repair work is being extended by at least another week.

Part of Main Street downtown has been dropped down to one lane at Brampton’s Four Corners in both directions for weeks due to Peel Region’s ongoing watermain, sewer replacement and paving work. The closures were expected to last until Friday but Peel Public Works now says it will take longer to complete the project.

In an update on Wednesday, the region says closures will remain in place until June 7 – a full week behind schedule.

The lane closures run from Wellington Street to Nelson Street/Theatre Lane with no on-street parking available while construction is underway. Several bus stops in the construction zone have also been moved with signs directing riders to the temporary stops.

Peel Public Works did not explain the delay, but said paving could be delayed due to weather if the temperature drops too low.

Crews have been allowed to work between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. on weekdays to get the repairs and paving done.

Brampton has had rolling road closures and detours as part of the region’s plan to upgrade and replace the watermain and sanitary sewer systems in the downtown, leading the city to make support funding of $4,000 available to help business owners impacted during the construction.

Construction on the downtown watermain revitalization project is expected to last until mid-2025.
