Railing for the Lakeshore Road Bridge
The town will be using the materials selected as part of the Lakeshore Road Streetscape Project.
Between December 5 and 23 we asked you to share your thoughts with us online or in person about: traditional streetscape furniture pieces; lighting (LED bulbs) for the streetlight poles; and the railing for the Lakeshore Road Bridge over Sixteen Mile Creek.
On Tuesday, January 31, 2017 staff go to Heritage Oakville Advisory Committee regarding a permit application for the recommended pieces.
On Monday, February 13, 2017 staff go to Council for approval.
Scope of the bridge reconstruction work:
- Removal and replacement of the existing concrete deck and steel girders
- Repairs to the existing piers and replacement of the bridge abutments
- Two travel lanes, a center turn lane and bikes lanes
- A wider pedestrian sidewalk with a barrier wall between the sidewalk and vehicular traffic
- New pedestrians railings
- Pedestrian lookouts will be incorporated into the bridge
- LED Street lighting on the bridge
Council approved the construction methodology and schedule of the bridge rehabilitation in the spring of 2016. Review a copy of the staff report to Council.
