Better still, raze the whole corridor and start with a fresh sheet to plan what a real old downtown looks like in the first place,. Seen better places in NA with a better old time downtown than Brampton 2 blocks. A lot of places in Europe could replace those 2 blocks with an surface LRT.We should run a concrete elevated guideway through this downtown, instead!
We need to preserve our automotive heritage. Any project should include a rusted out 1993 Toyota Tercel statue as public art commemorating our history.
It will be done one of these months when ML has the manpower to do the work. There are closures plan for each of the remaining months of this year that will be effecting VIA to the point they will be rerouted,. No idea what work is taking place or where for VIA to be rerouted.when oh when will they get rid of the temporary crossing structures for the Lakeshore West line and lift the slow order through the area? The permanent structure has been in place below it for a little while now.
Existing GO bridge underpass supports 3 lanes each way. Image from Apple Maps, probably ~2018.I’m still confused. Are there going to be two lanes for cars in each direction under the cooksville go train bridge? The bridge right now supports two lanes in each direction but leaves no room for an lrt.
Ok I thought we were doing a keele and st Clair streetcar scenario.Existing GO bridge underpass supports 3 lanes each way. Image from Apple Maps, probably ~2018.

Not sure about the state of construction here, but the island platform near the intersection to the south is likely deceiving.
Underpass should end up with 2 lanes each way in addition to LRT tracks.
Not sure about lane configuration entering this intersection, southbound will probably will lose at least one dedicated turn lane and have 2 through lanes.
At one time, the bridges were to be replace with a wider one with no centre pier for 4 tracks, but were deem heritage. No Keele/St Clair design was even plan to be use for the existing bridge.I’m still confused. Are there going to be two lanes for cars in each direction under the cooksville go train bridge? The bridge right now supports two lanes in each direction but leaves no room for an lrt.
The City of Mississauga (City) is seeking proposals for consulting services to advance the engineering work on extending the Hazel McCallion LRT (HM (LRT) through a downtown loop that will more effectively connect transit to high-density developments and meet the essential travel needs of both existing and future residents in downtown Mississauga
