Oakville council voted to approve the final design for the downtown Lakeshore Road reconstruction during a special meeting of the planning and development council April 10.

The reconstruction of Lakeshore Road between Navy and Allan streets is scheduled to start in the spring of 2019 and take place in two phases.

Phase 1 will see the reconstruction of Lakeshore Road between Navy and Dunn streets from spring to the fall of 2019.

Phase 2 involves the reconstruction of Lakeshore Road between Dunn and Allan streets from spring to fall 2020.

“Downtown Oakville is essential to the cultural and economic well-being of our community. We will be working closely with the Downtown Oakville BIA and individual businesses to implement measures that will encourage residents to continue visiting downtown throughout the reconstruction.”

“Downtown Oakville is essential to the cultural and economic well-being of our community,” said Oakville Mayor Rob Burton.

“We will be working closely with the Downtown Oakville BIA and individual businesses to implement measures that will encourage residents to continue visiting downtown throughout the reconstruction.”

Work on revitalizing the downtown streetscape began last year with the reconstruction of the Lakeshore Road Bridge.

The bridge incorporated the new streetscape features such as granite curbs and light standards that will be included for the Lakeshore Project.

This year the town will also be undertaking the conversion of existing one-way streets to two-way operation including the resurfacing of Navy, Randall, Church, George and Dunn streets.

“With Lakeshore Road East, (Navy Street to Allan Street) coming to the end of its lifespan, the town undertook extensive research and public consultation to identify broader opportunities,” said Dan Cozzi, the town’s director of engineering and construction.

“This undertaking will improve traffic, beautify streets and improve pedestrian/cycle ways in the downtown.”

During the April 10 meeting council also heard about potential mitigation efforts intended to ensure sustainability of the commercial district through the construction period.

“We have examined projects in other communities,” said Dorothy St. George, town director of economic development.

“Further consultation with businesses, Downtown BIA and other stakeholders will help ensure that we have the right plan for Oakville.”
