In progress City project

Transit and Road Infrastructure Plan

This city-wide plan will address road use pressures from residents as they move throughout the city.

About

The Transit and Road Infrastructure Plan (TRIP) is a city-wide plan that will address road-use pressures and issues faced by users as they move throughout the city.

The plan will develop a long-term transit network and a long-term road network, to offer additional transportation infrastructure support and encourage more types of travel such as transit, cycling and walking. The plan will guide future City actions, policies and transportation investment over the next 20 years.

This plan supports the City’s Transportation Master Plan (TMP) which was approved by Council in 2019. The Transportation Master plan is an overarching guide on the future of transportation in Mississauga.

This plan will:

  • Review and summarize existing constraints in the transportation network
  • Review network connectivity as well as multi-modal integration at key locations (e.g. nodes, major transit station areas, mobility hubs, and major transfer points)
  • Review needs and justification for the road capacity improvements identified in the Capital Plan
  • Examine and evaluate the range of potential transit priority, high-frequency, and rapid transit alternatives in the City
  • Assess potential people movement options to address congestion pinch points in the transportation network
  • Incorporate the safety principles of Vision Zero into transportation infrastructure improvement options
  • Prepare a strategy for identifying mode share targets
  • Assess the potential need and justification for additional rail grade separations in the City
  • Develop a prioritization and phasing plan for the recommended transportation infrastructure improvements

There will be opportunities for the public to provide input and feedback throughout the course of the project.

Milestones
  1. 1
    Phase 1: Define the problem and opportunity

    Produce a defined direction for Mississauga’s road network, reflecting, integration and compatibility of multi-modal transportation, land use and urban design. Public Engagement took place fall to winter of 2020 and 2021.

  2. 2
    Phase 2: Review and evaluate alternative solution developments

    This phase will include a transportation assessment, the development of alternative solutions and an evaluation of these alternatives. Public engagement to present these findings took place from June 6 to 27, 2022.

  3. 3
    Phase 3: Finalized preferred plan

    This phase will finalize the preferred plan, prioritize and build a phased approach for the recommended transportation infrastructure improvements.

Public engagement

The second public engagement session was held as a virtual on-demand meeting and community members participated by viewing materials on the study website from June 6 to June 27, 2022. To see the input that resulted from the engagement session, please see our  Public Engagement Feedback Report(External link).

The Transit and Road Infrastructure Plan ties into several transportation-related projects in the City.

Transportation Master Plan

The development of the Transit and Road Infrastructure Plan will complete three of the actions identified in the Transportation Master Plan. The Transportation Master Plan provides overarching guidance on the future of transportation in Mississauga and specifically calls for mode specific infrastructure plans. The Transit and Road Infrastructure Plan will focus on development of a long term road network, a long term transit network, and mode share targets.

Changing Lanes

This project will update, develop and implement new tools for staff, developers, and other street providers to ensure our streets are safe and more convenient for all users. The Changing Lanes project will consider inputs from the Transit and Road Infrastructure Plan project in the development of a new Road Classification plan.

The Downtown Movement Plan

This plan will function as a technical background study to the Downtown Strategy. It will provide an implementable multi-modal transportation plan for the Downtown Core that supports the Downtown Strategy, works to achieve the City’s Transportation Master Plan objectives, consolidates current plans, and considers future transportation projects and development patterns. The Transit and Road Infrastructure Plan will adopt the recommendations / infrastructure plan coming out of the Downtown Movement Plan.

Next MiWay Five

This plan is the next iteration of MiWay’s 5 year operations plan. This project is expected to be completed in the fall of 2020 and will be used to inform the Transit and Road Infrastructure Plan.

The Pedestrian Master Plan

This plan aims to improve the pedestrian network, infrastructure, policies, programs, and environment so that people of all ages and abilities have the freedom to move freely and comfortably as a pedestrian. The Transit and Road Infrastructure Plan will consider recommendations coming out of the Pedestrian Master Plan and how they fit into the overall transportation network.

City’s Official Plan

This plan provides policies that guide and direct the physical change of the city. We’re reviewing the existing Official Plan to ensure it reflects the changing needs, opportunities and aspirations of our city. To guide this Official Plan Review, the Transit and Road Infrastructure Plan is updating two schedules (Schedule 5 Long Term Road Network and Schedule 6 Long Term Transit Network) for the Official Plan. It will help ensure that the Official Plan transportation policies reflect our Transportation Master Plan’s (TMP) vision and goals.

Major Transit Station Area Study

This study is being undertaken by the Region of Peel in consultation with the City of Mississauga. This is significant work delineating the major transit station area boundaries and relates to the Mississauga Official Plan City Structure that is also under review. The Transit and Road Infrastructure Plan will consider recommendations coming out of the MTSA study.
