MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — The Peel Region of Ontario, near Toronto, is planning several road improvements as part of a 10-year, $1.7 billion infrastructure plan.
Among the work, Airport Rd. is to be widened to six lanes, from Queen St. E. to North Park Dr.
The process of widening Steeles Ave. from two to four lanes will be completed this year, with Mississauga Rd. to Chinguacousy Rd. receiving the final push.
Mississauga Rd. is being widened from four to six lanes, from Hwy. 401 to Hwy. 407. An interchange with 407 will be built in cooperation with the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario.
For its part, the provincial government last week unveiled a massive plan to build hundreds of kilometers of new roads over the next several years.
The Peel Region is also considering rebuilding the dangerous intersection at Hwy. 10 and Steeles Ave.
Finally, Winston Churchill Blvd. will be widened from two to three lanes from Steeles Ave. to Embleton Rd. in 2003.
