As construction season in Mississauga continues into the fall, City officials remind drivers and others to be aware of and safe around work zones.

Dozens of projects can be ongoing at any one time across the city and residents should know what work is taking place, City of Mississauga officials say.


To that end, they encourage people to check out an online interactive map that shows locations of and information about all current projects.

“The City, along with the Region of Peel, the Ministry of Transportation and Alectra, work together to organize and complete construction projects in Mississauga,” City officials say in an online information page. “Construction projects include work on roads, bridges, creeks, sewers, watermains and other types of infrastructure.

“The online construction map shows the projects planned in Mississauga this year. You can select a point or line on the map for information about a construction project, including contact details.”

Major upgrades to Matheson Blvd., the resurfacing of some 60 roads and the fixing up of five bridges are among $89 million in infrastructure projects planned for a busy 2022 Mississauga construction season, which runs from April to December.

City officials say construction season in 2022 features major investments “…to repair, maintain and expand transportation and stormwater infrastructure.”

Last year, the City spent $76 million on similar projects across Mississauga.

The 2022 projects will help reduce the risk of flooding and keep residents moving safely on roads, sidewalks and along cycling infrastructure, Mississauga officials say.

“These investments to expand, repair and improve our city’s transportation infrastructure is vital to ensuring people and goods can move efficiently and safely through and around Mississauga,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie earlier this year. “I want to thank Mississauga residents for their patience as this work is completed as well as the crews and City staff who are working hard to ensure all projects are done with as minimal disruption as possible.”

Construction projects within the City’s Roads and Stormwater Capital Programs include road resurfacing, sidewalk and multi-use trail construction, bridge repairs, creek erosion control work and dredging and maintenance of stormwater management ponds.

“We had a very busy and successful construction season in 2021, and this year will be no different,” Geoff Wright, Mississauga’s commissioner of transportation and works, said in May. “We plan to resurface 61 roads, rehabilitate five bridges and construct 8.1 kilometres of new sidewalks and 3.7 kilometres of new multi-use trails and cycle tracks.

“One of our major projects will be taking place on Matheson Blvd., which will include just over three kilometres of road resurfacing, the installation of raised cycle tracks on both sides of the road, new street lights and the replacement of pedestrian signals and pavement markings.”

Residents can take a look at the City’s construction map to find out where construction is happening in their neighbourhood or along their commute.

Wright said projects that repair erosion damage along watercourses are also included in construction season undertakings and, as such, “…we’ll be carrying out erosion control projects along five creeks across the city.”

Residents who have questions about construction projects in their neighbourhood can use the City’s interactive map to get more information about each project and find out who to contact with their questions.

The map also provides information about parks projects and projects being completed by the Region of Peel, Ministry of Transportation and Alectra.

Also, a Field Ambassador Program used by the City last year to improve communication with residents about the ongoing projects is in place again this year.

“If construction is taking place on your street this year, you’ll have the opportunity to speak with the Field Ambassador on-site, on the phone or by email so that any questions you have can be answered and you can plan ahead for any potential disruptions,” said Helen Noehammer, Mississauga’s director of infrastructure planning and engineering services.

Information on Mississauga’s construction season is also available by calling 311.
