Mississauga drivers face road closures, lane reductions as Hurontario LRT work ramps up
Published June 10, 2021 at 5:49 pm
Residents of the Port Credit area of Mississauga can expect potential traffic disruptions due to the ongoing construction on the Hurontario LRT.
As a result, over the course of the construction, access to certain roads and sidewalks will be adjusted.
Signage for road and sidewalk closures will be placed ahead of areas actively under construction, and bus stops in affected areas will remain operational through temporary boarding platforms.
Additionally, there could be temporary changes to the ways that properties are accessed—such as temporary restrictions to driveways and sidewalks.
However, construction crews will ensure at least one access to businesses and property is maintained through construction.
Further, to separate active construction sites from sidewalks and roads, traffic barrels and temporary fencing will be set up, and pedestrians and cyclists are strongly advised not to ignore signs and cut through these areas.
So far, crews have begun excavating the south and east parking lots and preparing for the construction of the structure that will form the tunnel underneath the Lakeshore West Corridor railway tracks.
When it’s complete, the 18-kilometre Hurontario LRT will service 19 stops—it will travel through two urban growth centres and connect to major transit systems including GO Transit (Milton and Lakeshore West lines), the Mississauga Transitway, Brampton Transit, ZUM, and MiWay.
It will also have its own dedicated lane ensuring a smooth, reliable, and convenient ride along the region’s busiest street.
