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:

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.
