Lane closures coming at major intersection for road work in downtown Brampton

Parking and driving around downtown could get congested when weeks of lane closures come to a busy stretch of Brampton.

Peel Public Works says part of Main Street will drop down to one lane at Brampton’s Four Corners in both directions starting on Monday for watermain construction and road paving work.

The closures will 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 will also be “shifted slightly” with signs directing riders to the temporary stops.

“There will be brief impacts while we are passing through the intersections,” the region said of the repairs. “During this time, traffic will be directed by police officers or flag persons,” adding that any required detours will have marked signs.

Crews have been given the green light to work between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. on weekdays and the work is expected to last until May 31, but paving may be delayed due to weather if the temperature drops too low.

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.

With businesses feeling the impact of construction with less traffic, the city made support funding of $4,000 available through its Downtown Construction Mitigation Grant pilot project to help owners stay afloat.

The Main Street lane closures will start on Monday at 7 a.m. and will last until May 31. Construction on the downtown watermain revitalization project is expected to last until mid-2025.
