Downtown Oakville Two-way Traffic Conversion
The two-way conversion of the existing street network in downtown Oakville was approved as part of the Downtown Transportation and Streetscape Study (DTS). For more information please visit the Downtown Transportation and Streetscape Study project page.
The two-way traffic conversion is currently in the detailed design phase. With the exception of Navy Street, the two-way conversion will be completed in 2018. Staff will be identifying the improvements needed as well as confirming the timing and staging of the works. The timing and staging plan will be available in late 2017.
Navy Street two-way conversion – January 5, 2017
Reconstruction of the Lakeshore Road Bridge over Sixteen Mile Creek is expected to start in late January 2017 and be completed in December 2017. The bridge will be closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic for the duration of the project. A detour route around the bridge will be provided via Kerr Street, Rebecca Street and Navy Street.
In advance of the bridge work, Navy Street will be permanently converted to two-way traffic on January 5, 2017.
Implementation of the two-way conversion will include the following:
- New signage and pavement markings
- Modifications to existing traffic signals
- Implementation of commercial loading zones
- Intersection geometry improvements
- Introduction of dedicated cycling lanes
