The City of Mississauga has launched the 2024 construction season with plans to spend more than $116 million on 19 new projects and eight continuing from 2023, including plans to resurface 51 roads.

Construction projects planned include road resurfacing, sidewalk and multi-use trail construction and bridge repairs as well as erosion control work along creeks and dredging and maintenance of stormwater management ponds and infrastructure.

“It’s vital to Mississauga’s growth and development. While construction season may cause temporary inconvenience on our roads, keeping our infrastructure in a state of good repair through regular maintenance helps ensure everyone’s safety and reduces the need for emergency replacements and repairs which can be more expensive,” said Geoff Wright, commissioner, transportation and works.

Work continues on Metrolinx’s Hazel McCallion Line, with track construction south of Highway 403 and then south of the QEW. The southern terminus at Port Credit GO Station will continue to take shape, while construction of other platforms will continue as well. For the latest updates, follow the Hazel McCallion Line on X.

“With the milder winter we had, we were given a great head start on this year’s construction season. For example, construction work was able to continue throughout the winter on the Burnhamthorpe Road bridge. Crews were able to finish building the working platforms, remove deteriorated concrete and reconstruct a retaining wall beside the Culham Trail,” said Sam Rogers, director, infrastructure planning and engineering services. “Several large road projects are also anticipated to be completed this year, which residents will be excited about. These include the Goreway Drive overpass bridge in Malton, the rehabilitation of The Collegeway, and the Rathburn Road and Ponytrail Drive Integrated Road Project.”
