Bike Lanes on Dixie Road -- Public Consultation

The Region of Peel is studying new lane configurations on Dixie Road, from south of Rometown Drive to Lakeshore Road, to include dedicated bicycle lanes and more buffer space for pedestrians. The existing four general-purpose lanes will be converted to two lanes plus left-turn lanes.

The Region wants to get feedback on the proposed changes. Please join in at the Public Information Centre (PIC) (webpage):

Date: Tuesday, October 27, 2015 @ 6:00 to 9:00 pm
Location: ST. LUKE'S CHURCH, 1513 Dixie Road, Mississauga

PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Complete Street approach improves safety, comfort and mobility for all road users regardless of age, ability or transportation type.
  • Lane reconfiguration improves safety by reducing vehicle speed differences and preventing excessive lane changes.
  • Bicycle lanes with painted buffers provide space for cyclists, separating them from motor vehicles.
  • Bicycle lanes located between sidewalk and general purpose lanes provide greater separation between pedestrians and motor vehicles.
  • Bicycle lanes will connect to the Waterfront Trail and future multi-use trails along Dixie Road, allowing easy access to a variety of destinations, including GO Transit stations.
  • Work will be implemented through the 2016 Dixie Road resurfacing as part of the Hanlan Water Project.
