Feedback is being collected until Feb. 1 on the Mississauga East portion of the BRT that will run from Etobicoke Creek to Confederation Parkway.
The City of Mississauga and Metrolinx are working together to complete environmental assessment approvals for the Dundas Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Mississauga East Project. The project will have an impact on the look, feel, and operation of Dundas Street in the future.
A live virtual community meeting will be held Jan. 27 at 6:30 p.m. to provide information about the project. Participants can share ideas, suggestions and input into the Dundas BRT Mississauga East environmental study findings regarding potential impacts on:
- Natural Environment and Tree Inventory
- Socio-Economic and Land Use Characteristics
- Cultural Heritage
- Noise and Vibration
- Climate Change and Sustainability
- Traffic and Transportation
- Air Quality
An online presentation includes background and schedule information.
The purpose of the Dundas BRT Project is to evaluate a proposed transit corridor along a 48 kilometre stretch of Dundas Street from Highway 6 in Hamilton through to the Kipling Transit Hub in Toronto, linking Etobicoke and Mississauga city centres. More than 20 kilometres would operate as bus lanes, or in a dedicated right-of-way, separate from other traffic, allowing for more frequent and reliable transit connections.
The focus of this round of engagement is to share the potential impacts and advance the design of the Mississauga East segment of the Dundas BRT (from Confederation Parkway to the Etobicoke Creek).
