Ongoing work on the $1.4-billion Hazel McCallion light rail transit (LRT) line will shut down part of a major Mississauga road near a busy intersection for two days next week.

Officials overseeing the massive transit project, which when completed in fall 2024 will run 18 kilometres along Hurontario St. from south Mississauga into Brampton, say a portion of the South Service Rd. near the QEW will close to traffic Feb. 21 and Feb. 22 from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night/overnight as construction crews work on stormwater installations in the area.

“A detour route access to South Service Rd. will be available via Pinewood Trail, Broadmoor Ave., Glenview Dr. and Crestview Ave.,” project leaders say. “This work is being scheduled when traffic is at its lowest in order to complete the task safely. Access to emergency vehicles will be maintained.”

During the closure periods over the two days, temporary lane closures on nearby Hurontario St. will be needed as well, officials say.

Work may be delayed or rescheduled due to weather.

“Every effort will be made to minimize disruptions,” project leaders add. “Residents and businesses near the work site can expect to hear noise and vibration caused by trucks, excavators, loaders, triaxles, backhoes and other construction equipment related to this work.”

The Hazel McCallion Line, when completed, will move passengers from Port Credit GO station in the south to Brampton in the north, with 19 stops along the way.

It 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.
