Have Your Say on Two Important Mississauga Transportation Projects

City services | September 2, 2021

The City of Mississauga is moving forward with two transportation projects that will create stronger connections and support reliable transit throughout Mississauga. Environmental assessments are currently underway for the Lakeshore Transportation Studies (a set of interconnected infrastructure projects along Lakeshore Road) and the Dundas Bus Rapid Transit Project.

From Thursday, September 2 to Thursday, September 23, residents and stakeholders are invited to learn more about each project and provide feedback. There are two ways to participate: attend a live virtual community meeting or visit each project’s on-demand virtual open house.

Have Your Say: Lakeshore Transportation Studies

The Lakeshore Transportation Studies include three infrastructure projects, which build from the 2019 Lakeshore Connecting Communities Transportation Master Plan. Environmental assessments are moving forward for each of the three projects:

  • Lakeshore Bus Rapid Transit – centre-running bus rapid transit lanes along a two- kilometre stretch of Lakeshore Road from the Etobicoke Creek to East Avenue
  • Lakeshore Complete Street – options to improve the experience for people travelling along Lakeshore Road and Royal Windsor Drive from East Avenue to the Oakville border
  • New Credit River Active Transportation Bridge – active transportation (walking, rolling, cycling) bridge crossing the Credit River north of Lakeshore Road

 What and When:       

There are two ways to participate in the Lakeshore Transportation Studies:

  1. Attend the live virtual community meeting on Thursday, September 16, 7 to 8:30 p.m. The meeting will include a presentation and question and answer session with the project team.

Register here to attend the virtual community meeting. Participants will receive meeting instructions once they have registered.

  1. Visit the virtual open house available on-demand from Thursday, September 2 through Thursday, September 23. An opportunity to provide feedback will be available through the virtual open house.

Have Your Say: Dundas Bus Rapid Transit

The City of Mississauga and Metrolinx are working together to obtain environmental assessment approvals through the Transit Project Assessment Process for the Dundas Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Project.

The Dundas BRT is planned to run for 48 kilometres along Dundas Street from Highway 6 in Hamilton to the Kipling Transit Hub in Toronto. This includes approximately 17 kilometres in Mississauga. One focus of this virtual open house is to advance the design of the Mississauga East segment of the Dundas BRT (from Confederation Parkway to the Etobicoke Creek).

What and When:

 There are two ways to participate in the Dundas BRT engagement:

  1. Attend the live virtual community meeting on Wednesday, September 22, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. The meeting will include a presentation and question and answer session with the project team.

Visit MetrolinxEngage.com/DundasBRT to attend the virtual community meeting.

  1. Visit the virtual open house available on-demand from Thursday, September 2 through Thursday, September 23. An opportunity to provide feedback will be available through the virtual open house.
