The City of Mississauga’s construction season is now underway following Council approval of a staff report that concluded that all construction projects within the Roads and Stormwater Capital Programs are essential under Ontario Regulation 82/20 – Closure of Places of Non-Essential Businesses . In total, there are 21 planned construction projects and eight projects continuing from 2019. These projects include road resurfacing, sidewalk and multi-use trail construction, bridge repairs, creek and erosion control work and construction of new stormwater management facilities.
Construction projects within the City’s Roads and Stormwater Capital Programs involve repair and maintenance of critical infrastructure, including roads, bridges and stormwater management ponds. With pot hole filling, sidewalk and curb repair and spring clean-up efforts already underway, the City is now moving forward with its busy road construction season.
Ongoing work is also being done to maintain the City’s 5,600 kilometres of roads. This includes monitoring road conditions year-round and repairing pot holes when the weather is appropriate.
