Joint provincial-federal investments would support a complete reconfiguration of the Dixie Road Interchange on the QEW in Mississauga
July 20, 2015 – Mississauga, ON
Today, Minister Steven Del Duca was joined by Federal Transport Minister Lisa Raitt to announce joint funding for the Queen Elizabeth Way – QEW Dixie Interchange project under the New Building Canada Plan, to provide an easier and safer drive for the hundreds of thousands of motorists who travel along that highway every day.
Joint provincial-federal investments would support a complete reconfiguration of the Dixie Road Interchange on the QEW in Mississauga. The Dixie Road Bridge, the Etobicoke Creek Bridge and the Ogden Road pedestrian bridge over the QEW would be replaced through this initiative.
The government’s plan to build Ontario up is supported by a number of initiatives, including broadening the ownership of Hydro One — an approach that raises billions for infrastructure.
Ontario’s long-term infrastructure plan will help connect regions, develop new economic opportunities and improve quality of life for Ontarians by supporting critical projects in cities, towns, and rural and remote communities all across the province.
Improving highways, roads and bridges across the province is part of the government’s economic plan for Ontario. The four-part plan is building Ontario up by investing in people’s talents and skills, building new public infrastructure like roads and transit, creating a dynamic, supportive environment where business thrives, and building a secure savings plan so everyone can afford to retire.
“I am happy that we are finally moving forward with the next stage of this project. The reconfiguration of the Dixie Road Interchange on the QEW, and the replacement of both of the Dixie Road Bridge and the Ogden Road Bridge will make travel easier and safer for many local commuters while improving our access to this stretch of highway.” Charles Sousa, MPP for Mississauga South.
