Traffic in Brampton may be more backed up than usual as crews begin watermain work downtown this week that could stretch well into 2024.

The Region of Peel is replacing watermains and sanitary sewers in the area of Queen St., reducing downtown traffic to one lane in both directions near the Main St. to the GO Tracks east of Chapel St.

To make up for a lack of on-street parking in the active construction area, free parking will be available in the municipal parking garages at Nelson Square, Market Square, West Tower, City Hall and John St.

The city says sidewalks will remain open to ensure pedestrian access to all businesses in the impacted areas, and businesses will still have delivery access through the laneways with both Harmsworth Ln. and Garden Square Ln. available deliveries and loading.

There will be some short-term work within the boulevards, followed by a complete replacement of curbs and sidewalks, when pedestrians will be directed to the other side of the street.

Construction is anticipated to be completed by late 2024.
