Mississauga City Council passed a resolution this spring that permanently closes City Centre Drive between Duke of York Boulevard and Living Arts Drive. This section of City Centre Drive that runs through the centre of Mississauga Celebration Square will be closed to vehicular traffic, but will remain open for use by pedestrians and cyclists.
The closure of City Centre Drive to vehicles allows for a walkable, pedestrian-friendly space where cyclists can travel with ease. It will make Mississauga Celebration Square more accessible for year-round activities, events and festivals that take place and will provide easy access for service and emergency vehicles.
When travelling in the downtown core, be sure to keep this closure in mind and plan your route accordingly. If you need to travel from Confederation Parkway or Living Arts Drive to Duke of York Boulevard, where City Centre Drive reopens, take either Princess Royal Drive or Burnhamthorpe Road.
