Hazel McCallion Line work is revitalizing Mary Fix Creek
Work will improve flood protection and provide better traffic flow; 30 parking spots are restored
Jul 10, 2023
Port Credit residents will see significant progress on the construction of the Hazel McCallion Line around their neighbourhood’s GO station. Reconstruction work along Mary Fix Creek is nearing completion, 30 parking spots were reinstated and the new Eaglewood Bridge is about to debut.
Reconstruction of Mary Fix Creek
Running from Old River Road in Mississauga to the Credit River, Mary Fix Creek is vital to preventing floods and erosion near the Port Credit GO. It has been undergoing a transformative revitalization as part of the Hazel McCallion Line project.
Work crews are reconstructing 400 metres of the creek bed, from just north of Old River Road, to the station. This is a critical stretch for flood protection, where the creek flows through a concrete-lined channel.
The new design is going to be wider and deeper which will provide additional flood control with up-to-date hydraulic modelling, improved safety, and resilience, all while protecting the community from significant storm damage.
To date, around 325 metres are complete, with the remainder expected to be finished this year.
Construction of the new bridge over the creek, from Eaglewood Boulevard to Oriole Avenue, is now complete! It will enhance traffic flow and offer better coordination with the LRT guideway on Hurontario Street.
Once the design for new traffic signals is in place, the new bridge will be commissioned and opened to the public.
With the construction progress, 30 spots in the north parking lot, between the creek and the tracks, have been reinstated at Port Credit GO.
