If you drive along the Dundas Street (Regional Road 5) corridor between Appleby Line (Regional Road 20) and Highway 403, chances are you have seen some construction.
Halton Region has made investing in our local infrastructure a significant priority. With more than $190 million committed to infrastructure this year alone, we’re making real progress on that investment. We’re building and expanding roads, revitalizing and enhancing our water and wastewater services and planning for the future of our communities.
Work on our water, wastewater and transportation systems in North Oakville are on-going and will impact the following areas over the next few years:
- Dundas Street (Regional Road 5) bridge reconstruction over 16 Mile Creek continues. When the project is finished in the spring of 2012, the new bridges will provide a total of six lanes with pedestrian and cycling facilities on both sides of the road.
- Dundas Street (Regional Road 5), between Appleby Line (Regional Road 20) and Highway 403. New water and wastewater mains will be installed to improve water and wastewater services in North Oakville.
- Neyagawa Boulevard, for the installation of new water and wastewater mains and a new water pumping station to improve services in North Oakville and help deliver water to Milton and Halton Hills. These projects are expected to be complete in July of 2012.
- Burnhamthorpe Road, between Neyagawa Boulevard and Trafalgar Road, for the installation of a new watermain. To help with this construction, Burnhamthorpe Road between Neyagawa Boulevard and Sixth Line will be temporarily closed from October 2011 to January 2012. Burnhamthorpe Road between Sixth Line and Trafalgar Road will then be temporarily closed from February 2012 and July 2012.
- Dundas Street (Regional Road 5) on the North East corner of Town Boulevard and Dundas Street. A new North Oakville wastewater pumping station will be constructed at 345 Dundas Street West to help improve our wastewater services and is expected to be completed in the summer of 2012.
- Dundas Street (Regional Road 5) from West of Oak Park Boulevard to Highway 403. Widening of this section of road to six lanes will start mid-November 2011 and is expected to be complete in 2014.
Halton Region is committed to minimizing the impacts of construction by keeping lanes open whenever possible, particularly during rush hours; providing advance notice of new projects and communicating about any potential impacts to roads and services.
We thank you for your patience as we work to Build a Better Halton. Together we can ensure Halton remains a great place to live, work, raise a family and retire.
