A busy street in Mississauga’s downtown core will be partially shut down until August so work crews can install a sanitary sewer to support rapid growth in that part of the city.

Southbound Duke of York Blvd., from Centre View Dr. to Rathburn Rd. W., was closed to traffic today (June 27) and will remain closed until Aug. 5 daily between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

Region of Peel officials, who are overseeing the work at that location in addition to plans for the wider downtown core, say traffic to businesses in the immediate area will be maintained throughout the closure.

Pedestrians will be redirected at the corner of Duke of York Blvd. and Rathburn Rd. W.

The work at that specific location is part of a larger undertaking in which some 12 kilometres of water and sanitary pipes is being installed in the downtown core.

The work, being completed to support growth in the downtown area in the coming decades, involves tunneling, trenchless technology and open-cut trenching, officials say.

All work in the Burnhamthorpe Rd./Duke of York Blvd. corridor is expected to be completed by end of 2022, with a full restoration of the area completed by summer 2023.

Work on the following areas has already been completed:

  • Duke of York Blvd: Webb Dr. to Burnhamthorpe Rd.
  • Elm Dr. W.: Kariya Dr. to Hurontario St.
  • Hurontario St.: Burnhamthorpe Rd. to Rathburn Rd.
  • Kariya Dr.: Elm Dr. W. to Enfield Place
  • Kariya Dr./Gate: Enfield Place to City Centre Dr.
  • Mississauga Valley Blvd.: Elm Dr. E. to Arista Way
  • Square One Dr.: Duke of York Blvd. to City Centre Dr.

Traffic delays are also expected this week due to watermain installation work on Dundas St. E., from Dixie Rd. to the Toronto border.
