Massive Mississauga transit project causes lane reductions at busy intersections

Two of Mississauga’s busiest intersections will be a bit busier today (May 17) and tomorrow as work on a huge Mississauga-Brampton light rail transit (LRT) route will cause lane reductions.
Project officials working on the 18-kilometre Hurontario LRT that, when completed in fall 2024, will take passengers from south Mississauga all the way north into Brampton say lanes will be reduced from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at:
- Hurontario St. and Eglinton Ave.–May 17 and 18
- Hurontario St. and Burnhamthorpe Rd.–May 17 and 18
Work crews and project officials advise motorists to “take extra caution when travelling through construction.”
The process of laying pieces of the tracks began recently, and it marked a major milestone in construction of the route, officials say.
The first tracks were installed at what project officials call the “nerve centre” of the rapid transit route–the Operations, Maintenance and Storage Facility located just south of Hwy. 407 on the Mississauga-Brampton border.
The LRT route will be known as the Hazel McCallion Line when it opens to passengers in late 2024.
When completed, the LRT will take passengers from Port Credit GO station in the south all the way north into Brampton, with 19 stops along the way.
The Hurontario LRT will link to GO stations at Port Credit and Cooksville, the Mississauga Transitway, Square One GO Bus Terminal, Brampton Gateway Terminal, and key MiWay and Brampton Transit routes.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
