Etobicoke Creek Trail
We’re making improvements along the Etobicoke Creek Trail from Burnhamthorpe Road to the Brampton border. This 11-km stretch of trail will see some of its parts widened, existing trail surface paved as well as rest areas will be added.
Wayfinding signage along the trail will also be updated to enhance user experience. We’ll also be adding traffic counting technologies to assess how well this trail is being used.
This project is being funded through the Government of Canada’s shared funding Public Transit Infrastructure Fund program. Funding is shared between the program partners—the City of Mississauga and the Government of Canada.
Major construction is now complete. Please review the sections below that indicate what work still needs to be completed due to other ongoing projects.
Project Update - November 2017
The asphalt surfacing portion of the improvements, including the installation of rest areas and landscaping is complete. Items remaining to be completed include: sign installation, pedestrian counting technology and bicycle repair stations.
Please note: Due to the City of Toronto’s Eglinton Avenue Bridge Rehabilitation Project over Etobicoke Creek being extended until spring 2018, the trail section north of this project will not be completed in 2017 as planned. Once the City of Toronto project is completed, the trail north, roughly 600 metres, can be completed by the City of Mississauga in spring 2018. For more information, please visit the City of Toronto’s project webpage.
In late June 2017, the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) began the rehabilitation of five structures along Highway 401. As a part of these works, the portion of the Etobicoke Creek Trail under Highway 401 will be closed for the duration of this project. For more information, please visit the MTO’s website.
