Bovaird Drive West construction affects Brampton Transit, GO buses, starting November 9

Monday, November 9, Region of Peelcontractors start a project to widen and improve

  • Bovaird Drive West [Regional Road 107] between Creditview Road / James Potter Road and Worthington Avenue / Lake Louise Drive.


Brampton Transit passengers can expect delays aboard buses along these routes:

  • 4 / 4A Chinguacousy
  • 5 / 5A Bovaird;
  • 9 Vodden;
  • 29 Williams;
  • 60 Mississauga Road;
  • 215 St. Thomas Aquinas iRide high-school special; and
  • 505 Züm Bovaird.

Starting Monday, November 9, the work zone blocks the westbound bus stop on the north side of Bovaird West west of Lagerfield Drive. Passengers can board or exit from buses at the next stop in the bus terminal at Mount Pleasant GO Station.

GO Transit passengers aboard buses along these routes can also expect delays:

  • 31 / 31B / 31E / 31F / 31M Guelph / Georgetown / Toronto; and
  • 33 / 33B / 33E Guelph / Georgetown / North York.

The Region previously rebuilt Bovaird Drive West between Worthington Avenue / Lake Louise Drive and Van Kirk Drive / Royal Orchard Drive — also affecting Brampton Transit and GO bus service — in 2019.

Construction on Bovaird Drive West and the resulting BT and GO service changes continue “until Fall 2021” or until November 30, 2021.

During this project, contractors are:

  • removing and replacing the westbound bridge over the tracks of the Canadian National Railway’s Halton Subdivision. (The tracks carry trains along GO Transit’s Kitchener line;
  • rebuilding and widening the roadway and the CN rail bridge from five to six lanes;
  • installing new multi-use pathways along both sides of Bovaird Drive West;
  • enhancing street-lighting, landscaping and boulevards; and,
  • improving intersections and traffic signals.

During most of the project, contractors are maintaining two lanes of traffic in each direction. Occasionally, they may expand the work zone to just one lane in each direction — but only during off-peak traffic hours.

Crews mostly work Mondays to Fridays from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m., but may occasionally work overnight and on weekends to keep the project on schedule and to reduce the timeline for disrupting the nearby community. The project may require crews to work weekends and overnight at the railway bridge to reduce the impact to CN and GO train service.
