Mississauga plans major transportation projects all along Lakeshore Road


Published September 30, 2021 at 11:11 am

Several major transportation projects, including a bus rapid transit route, are in the works for Lakeshore Road.

Residents and businesses who want input into a series of major transportation projects planned along Lakeshore Rd. in Mississauga have one last chance today (Thurs. Sept. 30) to participate in a virtual open house session. 

As the City of Mississauga moves forward with its Lakeshore Transportation Studies plan, a set of interconnected infrastructure projects along Lakeshore Road including a BRT and pedestrian/cyclist bridge across the Credit River, it has sought public feedback throughout September. 

Access to the virtual open house ends tonight. It offers visitors a chance to learn about the massive undertaking as well as provide input/feedback. (Use link later in story to access open house).

Environmental assessments, as required by law, are underway for the Lakeshore Transportation Studies series of projects.  

City officials say the huge endeavour will create stronger connections and support reliable transit across the city. 

“Ideas and public comments are important and will help inform the environmental studies and preliminary design work currently underway,” City officials say. 

Also included in the Lakeshore Transportation Studies projects is a “Lakeshore Complete Street” initiative that’s looking at options to improve the experience for people travelling along Lakeshore Road and Royal Windsor Drive from East Avenue (Lakeview area of Mississauga) to the Oakville border.  

The Lakeshore BRT is calling for centre-running BRT lanes along a two-kilometre stretch of Lakeshore Road from Etobicoke Creek to East Avenue.  

A new Credit River active transportation bridge would be built just north of Lakeshore Road and accommodate pedestrians, cyclists and rollerbladers, among others.
