Lakeshore Transportation Studies
The Lakeshore Transportation Studies include three infrastructure projects in the Lakeview, Port Credit and Clarkson communities that build from the 2019 Lakeshore Connecting Communities Transportation Master Plan. Each project requires a specific type of environmental review.
1. Lakeshore Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Study
The City of Mississauga is developing the preliminary design and completing the Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP) for the Lakeshore Bus Rapid Transit Project (BRT). The Lakeshore BRT is planned to run for two kilometres along Lakeshore Road from the Etobicoke Creek to East Avenue. This project has received funding through the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP) and will have an expedited timeline for development. Learn more about the ICIP funding granted to the City of Mississauga.

2. Lakeshore Complete Street Study
The City is also developing the preliminary design and completing the Schedule C Class Environmental Assessment (EA) for Lakeshore Road and Royal Windsor Drive. This study will consider a ‘Complete Street’ approach to improve the experience for people travelling along the Lakeshore corridor from East Avenue to the Oakville border.

3. New Credit River Active Transportation Bridge Study
The City is developing the preliminary design and completing the Schedule B Class EA for a new Active Transportation bridge over the Credit River north of Lakeshore Road. This bridge will enhance mobility across the river for people walking, rolling and cycling.

The map below shows the study areas for each of the three projects that make up the Lakeshore Transportation Studies.
Public and stakeholder consultation is an essential component of the Lakeshore Transportation Studies.
The first community meeting for the three projects that make up the Lakeshore Transportation Studies was held virtually on September 28, 2021. A virtual open house was also available on-demand from September 2 through September 30, 2021.
Community meeting #1
This was the first in a series of public engagement sessions that will take place throughout the process to present findings and receive public input. Watch a recording of the community meeting below.
During this first round of public engagement, the project team provided an overview of the projects, background information and evaluation criteria.
Information about upcoming meetings will be posted online and shared with the community as soon as available. All public engagement is planned to take place virtually at this time but may be changed to in-person as Ontario’s public health and safety guidelines allow.
