Lakeshore Road Reconstruction and Streetscape Project - Navy Street to Allan Street
The town is moving forward with a much needed project to reconstruct Lakeshore Road East and is looking for more public input as it plans the future streetscape for downtown.
Traditional Furniture style chosen for downtown
Following extensive public consultation, Council approved a traditional furniture style for downtown Oakville at the October 3, 2016 meeting. Review the staff report.
Desire to maximize a flexible (curbless) design of the Lakeshore Road East configuration was also discussed at these meetings as a topic for consideration.
What's next? Tell us what pieces you like best. Feedback open December 5 to 23
Traditional streetscape furniture pieces
We have two traditional options for each piece of streetscape furniture — bike rings, bollards, streetlight poles and benches for you to review.
Lighting (light colour and temperature)
There are also two types of LED fixtures/bulbs — 3000K and 4000K — that can be used in the new streetlights. Each provides the same brightness, but with differing light colour (also known as light colour temperature).
Railing at the Lakeshore Road Bridge
The town will be rehabilitating the Lakeshore Road Bridge at Sixteen Mile Creek starting in early 2017 using the materials selected as part of the Lakeshore Road Streetscape Project.
As part of the streetscape selection process, please review the three bridge railing options and tell us which one you like best.
We are also exploring the use of a flexible (curbless) design of the Lakeshore Road East configuration. Learn more about the pros and cons of this design and provide us with your feedback on Idea Forum, starting December 5, 2016.

Towne Square/Downtown Oakville
Two traditional furniture samples of the bench, bike ring, and bollard are on display for viewing in Towne Square.
In addition, two kinds of LED fixtures (3000K and 4000K) are installed in the streetlight poles along Lakeshore Road between Navy Street and Thomas Street. The south side has 3000K fixtures, the north side 4000k, to show the difference between the two light colours/light temperatures.
Check them out, then go online, or see us in person to tell us what you like best.
Online photo library and survey— December 5 to 23
Open house — December 8
Attend our open house from 6–8 p.m. in the South Atrium at Town Hall.
Samples of the benches, bike rings and bollards will be available at the meeting. Photos of the streetlight pole options and the Lakeshore Road Bridge railing options will also be available.
What happens next?
Once we gather your feedback, staff will present to the town’s Heritage Committee a preferred suite of traditional furniture pieces in the new year.
We will go to Council for approval in early 2017.
