Southwest Quadrant Renewal project:
Brampton Transit, GO detours start October 17



The City of Brampton is closing

  • George Street South south of Queen Street West

from Thursday, October 17 until December, to accommodate contractors who are connecting the new building at 41 George Street South to City Hall.

The City will reopen George South temporarily from Thursday, November 14 until Sunday, November 17, during several seasonal events, including Lowe’s Brampton Downtown Christmas Market, the City of Brampton Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony and the Brampton Board of Trade Santa Claus Parade. It will then close the street again from Monday, November 18 until Saturday, December 21.

The new building is part of the City’s Southwest Quadrant Renewal Plan, which, the City hopes, will revitalize the area south-west of the City’s main intersection of Queen and Main Streets, including City Hall.

The first phase of the project includes a new nine-storey building at 41 George Street that can accommodate:

  • administrative space;
  • ground retail space;
  • multi-purpose meeting rooms; and
  • 443 parking spaces (five levels of parking).

Brampton Transit is detouring buses operating along 24 Van Kirk and 25 Edenbrook routes and GO Transit is detouring buses operating along the 31 Guelph / Georgetown / Toronto and 33 Guelph / Georgetown / North York routes, while the street is closed.
