You know what they say: The show must go on.
While that’s not true of everything amid the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s true when it comes to the biggest transit project in Mississauga’s history.
If you regularly commute down Hurontario Street in Mississauga, you should note that some delays are possible due to a grand-scale construction project.
Metrolinx recently announced that commuters can expect new construction on Hurontario in preparation for the Hurontario LRT project.
The LRT, a $1 billion higher-order transit project being carried out by Metrolinx, will span 18 km and run from Port Credit GO at Lakeshore Rd. in the south to the Brampton Gateway Terminal at Steeles Ave in the north.
The LRT will boast 19 stops and provide connections to the Port Credit and Cooksville GO stations, Mississauga Transitway, MiWay and Zum transit lines.
Initially, it was slated to run 20 km and feature 22 stops, but Metrolinx recently announced it was chopping the City Centre loop to reduce costs.
What construction is coming up soon?
