Working together to Build a Better Halton

It’s summer and while many people are thinking about vacations and relaxing, Halton’s Public Works Department is thinking about construction. This year alone, we’re investing more than $670 million to upgrade, maintain and build the Region’s roads, as well as water and wastewater infrastructure. While these improvements are good news for residents, some inconvenience during construction is unavoidable. Together with our contractors we are working to minimize these disruptions.

To make sure you know of Regional construction activities and possible delays, you can dial 311 or visit for information on Regional projects happening in your area. We’re also improving our signage around construction areas so you can better plan your travel routes.

Over the next four years, Halton Region has committed to invest $1.7 billion on infrastructure because it’s the right decision for Halton.  Improving your quality of life – whether it’s helping to reduce commute times or providing you with clean, safe drinking water – is a top priority.

I’d like to thank all our residents and businesses for their patience during construction as we work to Build a Better Halton and encourage you to learn more about the planning and construction of our infrastructure projects from our website at

Working together, we can ensure that Halton remains a great place to live, work, raise a family and retire.
