The Gore Road construction:
Brampton Transit detour starts July 4



Update — Tuesday, September 4, 2018: 10:03 p.m.: Construction has ended and buses have resumed regular service.


Starting Tuesday, July 4, the Region of Peel and the City of Brampton are closing:

  • The Gore Road [Regional Road 8] between Queen Street East and Highway 50

during a regional project to:

  • widen and rebuild the roadway from two lanes to four lanes;
  • replace the bridge carrying The Gore Road across the Clarkway Tributary;
  • realign the tributary;
  • build retaining walls;
  • build culverts; and
  • add north- and southbound left-turn lanes.

Brampton Transit is detouring buses operating along this route, while the street is closed:

  • 50 Gore Road.

The project continues until fall 2018. However, this phase of construction, requiring the Region and City to fully close The Gore Road and Brampton Transit to detour buses, continues “until winter 2017”, or until December 31.

50 Gore Road

From Tuesday, July 4 until Sunday, December 31, southbound buses operate along their regular route to The Gore Road and Queen Street East, then detour:

eastward along Queen Street East; and then
southward along Highway 50 to The Gore Road,
resuming their regular route southward along Highway 50.

Southbound buses skip their regular stops

  • on The Gore Road at Kelways Circle, Manswood Crescent [north and south] and Highway 50.

Instead, southbound buses drop off or pick up passengers at temporary stops

  • on Queen Street East east of The Gore Road and
  • on Highway 50 at The Gore Road.

Northbound buses reverse the southbound detour routing.

Southbound buses skip their regular stops

  • on The Gore Road north of Highway 50 and across from Manswood Crescent [south and north] and Kelways Circle.

Instead, northbound buses drop off or pick up passengers at temporary stops

  • on Highway 50 across from The Gore Road and
  • on The Gore Road north of Queen Street East.
