With fewer people driving due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Mississauga is taking advantage of the lull in traffic to make life a little easier for cyclists and pedestrians—and with the weather getting a little warmer, the move couldn’t come at a better time. 

Recently, the city announced that a new “active transportation lane” is open on Glen Erin Dr. between Britannia Rd. W. and Aquitaine Ave. 

The lane will give local walkers, runners and cyclists additional space to practise physical distancing while outside.

The lane is the second of its kind in the city. Last week, temporary bike lanes were installed on King St. in Cooksville

Earlier this month, city council started talking about the possibility of temporarily converting live lanes (or at least part of live lanes) of traffic into bicycle lanes. 

More temporary lanes could be created in the coming days and weeks.
