Rehabilitation of Dixie Road (from Orchard Hill Road to 350 M northerly) and the CNR Bridge underpass (north of Lakeshore Road), City of Mississauga
The Region of Peel is rehabilitating Dixie Road and the CNR bridge underpass (north of Lakeshore Road). Work will be completed in stages.
What we are doing:
• Stage 1: East side rehabilitation of Dixie Road will start this spring 2021 through to late summer 2021. This work will include the sidewalk, repair of the underground water drainage, temporary asphalt pavement and line markings.
• Following stage 1, Alectra Utilities will relocate the existing aerial wires on the west right-of-way into new underground ducts, under the west side of the roadway. This is tentatively scheduled for completion by early fall 2021.
• Stage 2: West side rehabilitation of Dixie Road will start in fall 2021 through to summer 2022. This work will include the sidewalk, and final asphalt pavement on both sides of Dixie Road with permanent line markings.
The tender document was issued in early February and we’ve received many questions and requests from interested vendors. As a result, the closing date of the bid has been extended to Friday, March 12, 2021 to allow sufficient time for venders to provide adequate and competitive bids.
• One lane of traffic in either direction will be maintained for most works, with short duration single lane reductions, occurring only during off-peak traffic hours.
