Consultant
McCormick Rankin Corporation

Contractor
Rathburn Road: Graham Brothers
Mavis Road: Graham Brothers

Background
According to the City of Mississauga's Strategic Plan, one of the City's strategic goals is to build and maintain its infrastructure for its citizens and for generations to come. A sound, functional and attractive infrastructure is integral in completing its neighbourhoods, as we build a City for the 21st century.

The Rathburn Road Transit Priority Measures project has been updated with an interim design to provide for new bus stations and shelters along the existing boulevards of Rathburn Road from Hurontario Street to Duke of York Boulevard to accommodate the need to facilitate the transit ridership demands.  This interim design/construction is in advance of the future re-allocation of existing road space between Hurontario Street and Duke of York Boulevard in the Mississauga City Centre that will allow for installation of median reserved bus lanes on Rathburn Road. This project incorporates the existing Mississauga Transit City Centre Terminal as well as the GO Transit Station Gate Terminal.

Objectives/Benefits
This project improves efficiency of the transportation network specifically related to local and inter-regional public transit vehicles in the Mississauga City Centre. Providing priority to public transit will attract additional transit ridership and reduce automobile trips, with the aim of ultimately reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
