  • Project details of the QEW/ Dixie Interchange

    The purpose of this is to provide interested parties with access to project information and to contact the Project Team.

    Contract 1:

    Contract 1 of the QEW/Dixie Project (from east of Dixie Road to the East Mall) is currently under construction and is anticipated to be completed by the end of 2021.

    Contract 2:

    The Detail Design for Contract 2 is underway and will continue throughout 2020/2021. Contract 2 covers the works along QEW from east of Cawthra Road to west of Etobicoke Creek.  Once the detail design is complete, the Design and Construction Report (DCR) will be made available for a 30-day public review period. Notification regarding the time and location of the availability of the DCR for review, will be published in local newspapers, posted onto the project website and mailed to those on the project contact list.  At this time, we anticipate construction of the main Contract 2 works to commence in 2022; however, advanced works such as utility relocations have started within the project limits and phase into the actual construction for Contract 2.  This timing is subject to funding, completion of the detail design, and receiving all required environmental permits and approvals.

    Public consultation is anticipated to include methods such as informational updates to the project website and a future public information centre.  Stakeholders will be notified in the upcoming months once a date and virtual hosting platform have been determined for the PIC.  All current information regarding Contract 2 is available on the project website on the Consultation page under the Public Information Centre section: http://www.qewdixiedetaildesign.ca/consultation/.

    In regards to the current state of the condition of the municipal roads, maintenance and operations of the Service Roads and Dixie Road remains under the jurisdiction of the City of Mississauga and Peel Region, respectively. The segments within the project limits of these municipal roads, will be assumed by MTO upon commencement of Contract 2 for construction purpose where practical. The MTO will continue to consult with the municipalities throughout design and construction.

    If you require further information regarding this project, please feel free to email the Project Team at ProjectTeam@QEWDixieDetailDesign.ca or visit the project website at www.qewdixiedetaildesign.ca.

  • The City of Mississauga’s Budget Committee Considers New and Increased Fees and Charges for 2021

    October 7, 2020

    The City of Mississauga’s Budget Committee considered new and increased fees and charges for 2021 for transit fares, fire and emergency services, planning processing, library, culture programs and rental rates, transportation and works, recreation programs and rental rates, fees for parks, forestry and environment services and fees for general administrative services provided across departments. These revenue sources will help offset the cost of delivering services. The proposed fees and charges will be presented at a Council meeting for approval on October 14, 2020. A number of proposed changes are highlighted in the Budget Committee reports including:

    • Recreation fees have a proposed base increase of 3 per cent. Some programs, such as advanced aquatics leadership courses, have recommended an above average increase due to increased operating costs and certification fees.
    • Transportation and Works has introduced two new fees in the Works Operations and Maintenance Division for Road Occupancy Permits for utility-related maintenance works ($25 per permit) in addition to a non-compliance fee of $190 related to inspections.
    • U-Pass (UTM Student pass) fees will increase as per contract and charter service rates will be adjusted for inflation. In addition, MiWay has introduced two new fees to offset the costs of restoration of on-street transit infrastructure due to road construction and closures. A Transitway Access Permit Fee of $250 per application and a MiWay Stop Infrastructure permit review fee of $400 per stop location have been added.

    Additional revenue of approximately $1.9 million is expected from the increases and new fees as outlined in the Oct 7, 2020 Budget Committee reports.

    “The revenue from the fees and charges will alleviate some pressures on the property tax rate in 2021,” said Gary Kent, Commissioner of Corporate Services and Chief Financial Officer. “Community and financial recovery is a priority going forward and we are taking the steps necessary to balance offering services with the property tax increase. We continue to encourage public participation and input into our budget process, and we will continue to work with our Council to achieve a budget that meets our City’s needs.”

    All Budget Committee and Council meetings are open to the public. The next Budget Committee meeting is scheduled for Monday, November 23, 2020. The full schedule of meetings is available online at Council and Committees Calendar Listings. Final approval of the City of Mississauga’s Budget will follow approval of the Region of Peel Budget.

    Look through the City’s preliminary 2021 Budget and Business Plan and understand why these documents play an important role in shaping our city. Residents can learn more by:

    Dear Neighours,

    In light of changes that are occurring to housing in your neighbourhood, the City of Mississauga is reviewing the zoning regulations that would apply to your property.  The implications of potential changes that could affect your property include, but are not limited to:

    1. Permissions for type of housing (e.g. detached dwelling, semi-detached dwelling, townhouse dwelling, etc.)
    2. Minimum lot size and frontage
    3. Required setbacks for buildings and structures
    4. Maximum height of dwelling

    The purpose of the community meeting will be for staff to present potential options for revised zoning regulations for your property. You are welcome to provide feedback on these potential changes, and ask any questions of staff.

  • Dixie Road underpass Pedestrians access Update

    I am pleased to provide you with an update on this complex project, as it will involve a phased approach, including the relocation of utility infrastructure.

    1. Enbridge has completed the relocation of their gas main and the trench has been patched.  Cleaning/sweeping of the road and pavement markings were performed over the weekend.  Although the pavement may not be aesthetically pleasing, this is temporary until such time that the Region completes its construction.

     

    1. The next step will be for the Region to tender the bridge underpass rehabilitation project by the end of this year.  The works will be phased, with Phase 1 being the construction on the east side of the underpass commencing Spring 2021.  While the east side (including east sidewalk) will be under construction, it will be closed and pedestrians will be directed to use the west sidewalk.  There will be 2 lanes (1 northbound, 1 southbound) on the road open to both vehicular and bicycle traffic.  We anticipate Phase 1 to be completed by the end of Summer 2021.

     

    1. Following the Region’s work on the east side, Alectra will begin to relocate their hydro line from aerial to underground (under the bridge on the west side of road).  This work is driven by Metrolinx’s electrification requirements.  We anticipate that Alectra will complete their work in Fall 2021.
    2. Once Alectra’s work is complete, the Region will commence with Phase 2, being the construction on the west side of the underpass commencing Fall 2021 and continuing through to Summer 2022. While the west side (including west sidewalk) will be under construction, it will be closed and pedestrians will be directed to use the east sidewalk.  There will be 2 lanes (1 northbound, 1 southbound) on the road open to both vehicular and bicycle traffic.  We anticipate Phase 2 to be completed in Summer 2022. Phase 2 will take additional time, since there will be a construction shut-down period over the winter months.
