More construction coming to major streets to make way for LRT in Mississauga

 

Some more construction is coming, but it's paving the way for something very exciting. 

If you regularly commute down Hurontario Street in Mississauga, you should note that some delays are possible due to a grand-scale construction project.

Metrolinx recently announced that commuters can expect new construction on Hurontario in preparation for the Hurontario LRT project.

The LRT, a $1 billion higher-order transit project being carried out by Metrolinx, will span 18 km and run from Port Credit GO at Lakeshore Rd. in the south to the Brampton Gateway Terminal at Steeles Ave in the north. 

The LRT will boast 19 stops and provide connections to the Port Credit and Cooksville GO stations, Mississauga Transitway, MiWay and Zum transit lines.

Initially, it was slated to run 20 km and feature 22 stops, but Metrolinx recently announced it was chopping the City Centre loop to reduce costs.
