Completed in 2017 City project

Etobicoke Creek Trail improvements

The City made improvements along 11 km of the Etobicoke Creek Trail from Burnhamthorpe Road to the Brampton border. This stretch of the trail had some parts widened, existing trail surface paved, and rest areas added.

Person walking on Etobicoke Creek TrailWayfinding signage along the trail has also been updated to enhance user experience. We also added traffic counting technologies to assess how well this trail is being used.

This project was funded through the Government of Canada’s shared funding Public Transit Infrastructure Fund program. Funding was 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 – complete

The asphalt surfacing portion of the improvements, including the installation of rest areas, landscaping and wayfinding signs, pedestrian counting technology and bicycle repair stations are all complete.

Please note: South of Eglinton Avenue East are similar trail works being carried out by the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA).

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.
