What's Halton Doing to Keep Traffic Moving

Halton Region, in cooperation with the Local Municipalities, operates and maintains the regional traffic signal system. As the Regional road network expands, there is more demand in moving large volumes of traffic along regional road corridors. Resources are being dedicated to replacing and updating traffic signal hardware with newer, smarter technology as well as establishing a formal communication network which will increase our capability to improve traffic flow.

Halton Region will be initiating its Annual Corridor Review Program, which will optimize signal timings at the following signalized road corridors to provide more efficient traffic flow during rush hour periods:

  • Guelph Line, from Fairview to Upper Middle Road
  • Upper Middle Road, from Bronte Road to Sir Winston Churchill Boulevard
  • Steeles Avenue, from Martin Street to Esquesing Line
  • Dundas Street, from Bronte Road to Third Line

The following is a list of corridors along with corresponding year in which optimized signal timings were last implemented:
