Halton Region is making improvements to Trafalgar Road between Leighland Avenue and north of Hays Boulevard in the Town of Oakville.

The project will address future traffic demands and provide safe travel options for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists. Improvements include:

Widening from four to six lanes
New sidewalks
New off-road bike lanes
New bus stops and shelters
New traffic signals and street lights
New noise walls
New landscaping
Upgraded watermains
Upgraded stormwater main infrastructure

Equipment for the Regional Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS) will also be installed. The ATMS is a traffic signal control system that enables real-time signal adjustments - saving time, reducing emissions and improving safety for motorists.

What you can expect day-to-day

Trafalgar Road is a major north-south corridor that residents and motorists rely on to get to work, school and services every day. Halton Region is making every effort to minimize the disruptions and help you plan ahead for construction activity.

Learn more about what to expect day-to-day, our mitigation plans and how to stay connected on the project.

I’m a resident or business in the area

Advance notice of any service disruption or construction impacts will be provided to residents in-person, through letter, email and website updates.

Below are some impacts you may experience:

  • Truck traffic: You will notice occasional increases in truck traffic. Please use extra caution while driving.
  • Water: Your water service may be interrupted as watermain work is completed.
  • Waste Collection: Your waste collection schedule may need to be adjusted to accommodate construction.
  • Noise: Work will be scheduled in accordance with local noise by-laws. Some work outside of regular hours may be necessary for technically challenging construction operations.
  • Vibration: You may experience some vibration due to the work being done. As a precaution, we recommend that you remove or secure objects on shelves and walls.
  • Dust and mud: The contractor is required to keep dust and mud contained.

I use this road regularly

Advance notice of any closures or restrictions will be available through letter, email, social media, road signs and website updates.

The following mitigation strategies have been put in place to minimize the impact on traffic and travel:

  • Widening one side of the road at a time: This allows two lanes of traffic to continue in each direction.
  • Reducing speed limits: To ensure safety, the speed limit will be 60 km/h, and reduced to 50 km/h in some areas.
  • Using electronic road signs: Road signs will show up-to-date travel times.
  • Monitoring traffic flow: The Region will monitor traffic through overhead vehicle detection at traffic signals; Closed Circuit Television (CCTV); and coordination of network traffic operations.
  • Coordinating public transit: Halton will coordinate with Oakville Transit to ensure transit users have the latest information.
  • Using tunnelling methods: Work to replace watermains and stormwater mains will happen under the road to avoid the need for full road closures.

Latest traffic updates and notices

Traffic updates

  • Utilities, such as Oakville Hydro, have started moving hydro poles to prepare for construction. This work may cause lane shifts or lane restrictions.
  • There are no detours at this time.
