This is a joint project between the City of Mississauga, City of Brampton and CN Rail aimed at making improvements to Goreway Drive to enable a grade separation over the CN tracks. The project area will span from Brandon Gate Drive to Kenview Boulevard.
Goreway Drive crosses CN Rail’s existing Halton Subdivision, which is approximately 300 metres north of Brandon Gate Drive and accommodates about 50 freight trains a day. There are three tracks in service facilitating the movement of freight trains into and out of CN Rail’s Brampton Intermodal Terminal located at the north of the project area (also referred to as the Study Area Corridor).
Currently, Goreway Drive functions as a major collector roadway in Mississauga and a four-lane arterial roadway in Brampton. It provides north-south connectivity for commuter, commercial and emergency service vehicles between the two cities.
Goreway Drive between Brandon Gate Drive and North City Limit will be closed for a period of 12 to 15 months. The temporary road closure is required to construct the grade separation over the Canadian National (CN) Rail tracks.
The temporary road closure will begin on September 27, 2023 and end on July 26, 2024. Construction hours have been approved from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and advance warning signs and detour signs have been positioned in the construction area.
