The City of Mississauga is planning to reconfigure Erin Centre Boulevard, between Tenth Line West and Oscar Peterson Boulevard, to improve the safety and comfort for all road users. Construction would start as early as July 2021.
This section of Erin Centre Boulevard has an adjacent park, nearby school, and is a central section of the Erin Centre Trail, a newly-paved trail connecting the upcoming Churchill Meadows Community Centre and Sports Park, various parks, and the Winston Churchill Transitway Station. Improving the safety and comfort of drivers, pedestrians and cyclists is consistent with the City’s commitment to Vision Zero, various Mississauga policies and master plans.
The road will be reconfigured to one vehicular lane in each direction, and a new centre-turn lane, with existing turn lanes maintained. The existing bike lanes will be widened and protected using flexible bollards and/or precast concrete curbs.
This new configuration will:
- Reduce turning conflicts for motor traffic
- Encourage lower motor traffic speeds
- Accommodate safer crossings of cyclists and pedestrians
- Physically separate cyclists and pedestrians from motor traffic
Based on a pre-COVID technical analysis, traffic volumes on Erin Centre Boulevard in this area can be accommodated in the proposed configuration. Turning on to or off of Erin Centre Boulevard will be facilitated by the dedicated two-way left turn lane.
Buses will be accommodated by new raised platforms at the bus stops, to minimize conflicts with cyclists. The eastbound bus stop at 3150 Erin Centre Boulevard will be removed due to low ridership.
