Update on Mississauga Watermain Projects along Dundas Street

If you're driving Dundas Street in Mississauga, from any direction, you may notice some delays along the way. That is because there are currently some ongoing water main projects and a few new ones coming being overseen by the Region of Peel and the City of Mississauga.

The local city councillor in the area, Ward 6 Councillor Ron Starr, recently put this notice up on his Twitter feed about these projects. Some of them are in Ward 6 along Dundas between Mavis and the Credit River, but some are outside in adjacent wards.

Here are the details of the current ongoing projects:


Dundas at Glen Erin / Liruma

  • The purpose of this project is to replace and improve the aging water main on various streets in the Sheridan Homelands area as shown in this map.

  • They are also replacing the water service pipe to your service box.

  • The reason for this is to upgrade the water system capacity and reliability as part of the Region of Peel's State of Good Repair program.

  • The project should be completed before October 1 of this year. All work is under warranty for two years from the completion date.


Dundas Street: Fifth Line to Erindale Park

  • The purpose for this project is to replace and improve the aging water main along Dundas Street West: Fifth Line West to Nanticoke Road as shown on this map..

  • Also the Region is replacing the water service pipe to your service box.

  • The reasoning for this is to upgrade the water system capacity and reliability as part of the Region of Peel's State of Good Repair program.

  • The work started around March 6, and work was scheduled to be completed before June 30 of this year. All work is under warranty for two years from the completion date.

And these are details pertaining to projects that are about to commence:


Dundas Street: Mississauga Road to Cedarglen Gate

You may notice the following activities around this particular section of Dundas:

  • Marking the location of gas, hydro, cable, etc. on roads, driveways and lawns.

  • The drilling of boreholes to determine ground conditions.

  • Surveyors may be surveying your street.

  • The taking of pictures to help us make sure we restore the area to its former condition.

  • The Region of Peel has advised residents to delay any major landscaping work on their property until they have finished their work.

  • No exact dates provided as of this writing; Starr's notice said work is about to commence so they may have started already. Anticipated finish date? too soon to tell.


Dundas Street West at Credit River Bridge

  • This is a City of Mississauga Bridge Rehabilitation Project, speficially regarding the bridge over the Credit River from Mississauga Road until just outside Erindale Park.

  • As stated in an email to insauga from Capital Projects Manager Rebecca Huang, the project is currently in the final phase of the design. The bridge will be widened to allow for a multi-use pathway (at the north side of the bridge). The city will be replacing the bridge deck and modifying a few features to upgrade the bridge.

  • Construction is anticipated to start in late fall of this year, with anticipated completion by the end of the summer of 2018. One-lane traffic in each direction will remain open during the construction.

So be mindful of the road conditions and be vigilant driving along Dundas! Perhaps postponing those house renovations until all that construction is finished would be a good idea.
