Bus Rapid Transit Construction - Road Impacts

Jul 05, 2011

The City of Mississauga's Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Project - a dedicated east-west transit-corridor is under construction. Residents and commuters will experience delays.

"To inform residents and commuters of road impacts and alternate routes the City developed a web page on the MiWay website outlining the construction and expected timings," said Geoff Wright director, Transportation Project Office and Business Services. "Once completed, the BRT system will improve transit offering faster travel times to key destinations and links to other transit systems."

Wright explained that once completed in 2013, the route will run along Highway 403, Eastgate Parkway and Eglinton Avenue corridors, connecting Winston Churchill Boulevard in the west to Renforth Drive in the east. The Mississauga busway will have eleven new stations at major road crossings and connect with the City Centre transit terminal at Square One. It will also connect with inter-regional transit and the TTC subway.

The Mississauga BRT project is a cooperative effort between the City of Mississauga, GO - a Division of Metrolinx, the Province of Ontario and the Federal government.

Visit the MiWay website for details and list of road impacts.
