Downtown Mississauga road work will temporarily close area to traffic.

Drivers in Mississauga’s downtown core can expect traffic delays due to lane closures planned for tonight and into early Wednesday morning as sewer work is completed in the area.

Region of Peel public works officials say temporary lane closures on Rathburn Road West and Duke of York Boulevard are scheduled to take place, weather permitting, from 10 p.m. Tuesday night until 4 a.m. Wednesday morning.

Officials note the work involves the “final connection” to a new sanitary sewer as part of a project that began and was largely completed in late summer 2022.

Work crews installed the new underground infrastructure in order to support rapid growth in that part of the city that’s anticipated in the years and decades to come, project leaders said earlier.

The sanitary sewer work in that section of the downtown core is part of a larger undertaking in which some 12 kilometres of water and sanitary pipes was installed in the area.

The work, being completed to support growth in the downtown area in the coming decades, involved tunnelling, trenchless technology and open-cut trenching, officials said.

All major work in the corridor was completed by the end of 2022, with a full restoration of the area completed by this past summer.

Work on the following areas was completed prior to summer 2022:

  • Duke of York Blvd: Webb Dr. to Burnhamthorpe Rd.
  • Elm Dr. W.: Kariya Dr. to Hurontario St.
  • Hurontario St.: Burnhamthorpe Rd. to Rathburn Rd.
  • Kariya Dr.: Elm Dr. W. to Enfield Place
  • Kariya Dr./Gate: Enfield Place to City Centre Dr.
  • Mississauga Valley Blvd.: Elm Dr. E. to Arista Way
  • Square One Dr.: Duke of York Blvd. to City Centre Dr.
