According to city staff, the 10-year plan helps internal and external stakeholders plan for the delivery of capital projects, including environmental assessments, detailed design, property acquisition and utility relocation.
It also considers projects and schedules from the Ministry of Transportation, City of Mississauga and Region of Peel to reduce duplication and potential construction conflicts, and to reduce costs and impact to residents, according to the report.
Walkability and cycle-friendliness are also under consideration.
“The design of the roads are being completed looking at options to improve the experience for pedestrians, transit users and cyclists with an emphasis on landscaping and interesting design elements where possible to help animate the right of way,” reads the report.
