About

The Dundas Street Corridor is a key part of our transportation network, with thousands of people using it every day to move around the city.

Over the next 35 to 40 years, the number of people living, working and travelling along Dundas Street will greatly increase. To plan for this growth, the City developed the Dundas Connects Master Plan.

The Master Plan fulfilled the requirements of Phases 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) process, and was endorsed by City Council on June 18, 2018.

  • Implementing Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) along Dundas Street
  • Encouraging mixed-use development that supports transit

  • Maintaining existing and supporting new affordable housing
  • Maintaining four traffic lanes along Dundas Street

Implementation

The Dundas Connects Master Plan is being implemented through the following projects:

With the new Hurontario Light Rail Transit(External link) line on the horizon, Hurontario Street is expected to grow and change. To manage this change, the City is updating the Official Plan(External link) to encourage vibrant, walkable, transit-supportive development in the Downtown Fairview, Cooksville, and Hospital communities.
