One of the city's most significant construction projects is in full-swing.

This year, the city launched construction of the upcoming Light Rail Transit system (better known as the Hurontario LRT project).

The LRT, a $1.4 billion higher-order transit project being carried out by Metrolinx, will span 20 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 22 stops and provide connections to the Port Credit and Cooksville GO stations, Mississauga Transitway, MiWay and Zum transit lines.

Metrolinx recently announced that more construction is or will be underway in the following areas:
