Transit and Road Infrastructure Plan – Notice of Public Engagement – Public Open House #3

By Events, Resources

Mississauga Transportation Master Plan

The Study
In 2019, the City of Mississauga completed its inaugural Mississauga Transportation Master Plan that
identified an aspirational transportation vision: In Mississauga, everyone and everything will have the freedom to move safely, easily, and efficiently to anywhere at any time.

The City of Mississauga is nearing completion on the Transit and Road Infrastructure Plan study that
identifies a long-term transit network plan and a long-term road network plan – infrastructure plans that are critical to achieving the City’s transportation vision. The study complements other Mississauga infrastructure plans and guidelines including the Cycling Master Plan (competed in 2018), the Pedestrian Master Plan (completed in 2021), and the Changing Lanes study (on-going). These plans are essential elements to creating an integrated, multimodal transportation system which fosters the freedom to move.

The Process
This Study follows the master planning process described in the Municipal Engineers Association Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) Manual (October 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011, and 2015). The Master Plan process will satisfy Phases I (Identify Problem and Opportunity) and II (Identify and Evaluate Alternative Solutions to the Problem or Opportunity) of the Municipal Class EA process. The final plan will be a document that will guide actions, policies and transportation investment in Mississauga over the next 20 years.

Virtual On-demand Meeting #1 was held in December 2020. We heard from you about key transportation issues, draft direction for the study, preliminary alternative solutions, and draft evaluation criteria.

Virtual On demand Meeting #2 was held in June 2022, and we heard your feedback on the evaluation of alternatives and draft recommended transportation network.

Get Involved
Our final round of public engagement will be held in-person and online. Your input is important to this study.

You will be able to learn about the proposed long-term transit network plan and long-term road network plan and provide your comments which will be considered in the finalization of the Transit and Road Infrastructure Plan.
