The City of Mississauga’s construction season is underway with important projects to repair, maintain and expand Mississauga’s transportation and stormwater infrastructure. This work will help reduce the risk of flooding and keep residents moving safely on roads, sidewalks, multi-use trails and cycling infrastructure. This year, there are 21 new projects with an estimated budget of $136.4 million and five projects continuing from 2022.
“As Mississauga continues to grow and mature, ongoing investments in our infrastructure are essential to keeping you moving safely and efficiently through the city and protecting homes and businesses from intense rainfall and flooding,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “I want to thank residents for their patience as this essential work is completed. A big thank you to the City staff and crews who ensure this work is done with minimal disruption to residents and businesses.”
Construction projects within the City’s Roads and Stormwater Capital Programs include road resurfacing, sidewalk and multi-use trail construction and bridge repairs. Construction projects also include erosion control work along creeks, dredging and maintenance of stormwater management ponds and facilities as well as maintaining the City’s stormwater infrastructure.
“Our 2022 construction season delivered concrete results and this year will be no different. Our main priorities, especially on our roadways, is the safety of the travelling public, limiting delays and ensuring residents can move as they choose, whether its by foot, bike, transit, mobility device or vehicle,” said Geoff Wright, Commissioner, Transportation and Works. “One of our major projects will be taking place along The Collegeway, from Winston Churchill Boulevard to Mississauga Road. This project will include pavement rehabilitation, intersection improvements, new traffic signals and street lights, repairs to curbs, sidewalks and catch basins as well as the installation of cycle tracks from Winston Churchill Boulevard to South Millway.”
Residents can use the online construction map to find out what kind of construction projects are happening in their neighbourhood or along their commute, as well as who to contact if they have any questions. The construction map also provides information about City parks projects and projects from the Region of Peel, Ministry of Transportation and Alectra.
The City’s Field Ambassador Program is another way that Mississauga residents and business owners can stay informed about the work being done. Those who want to learn more about construction happening along their street can connect with the Field Ambassador to have their questions answered and prepare for any potential disruptions.

Controlling Pests on Construction Sites
The City will continue to effectively control pests through its Construction Pest Control Program. All construction projects will be assessed on a project-by-project basis to ensure the necessary pest control measures are implemented. The City’s program aligns with the Region of Peel’s Rat Control Subsidy Pilot Program, which has been extended to help residents with managing rat issues around the outside of their homes.
Ongoing Spring Maintenance
Ongoing spring maintenance and cleanup also continues to maintain the City’s 5,700 kilometres of roads, including filling potholes, sweeping streets, repairing sidewalks and sod damaged by winter operations and clearing litter and debris.
With all of this ongoing work, residents are reminded to be cautious when travelling near construction sites, adhere to all site signs and barricades and to please be respectful and give crews space as they work.
