Two-way Traffic Conversion Project

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.

Under construction

As part of the Downtown Plan, the town is converting the roads in downtown Oakville from one-way to two-way streets. The streets will be open to one-lane traffic and on-street parking will be temporarily removed while work is underway. Any changes to downtown transit routes will be available on

Thomas Street, Dunn Street, George Street and Church Street are now open and operational for two-way traffic. 

The following is a schedule of the streets under construction:

Randall Street November 5–7
Two-way conversion and resurfacing from Navy Street to Douglas Street includes asphalt grinding, new pavement, signage and markings.

Navy Street, Dunn Street, George Street November 12–14
Resurfacing on Navy Street (Randall Street to Lakeshore Road), Dunn Street and George Street (Randall Street to Church Street) includes asphalt grinding, new pavement and markings.

Municipal Lot 5

The town initiated a project to resurface and improve Municipal Lot 5, located on the south side of Robinson Street at Dunn Street. The work plan included:

  • concrete repair, removal and resurfacing of asphalt
  • line painting and space markings
  • creating a designated accessible parking space
  • relocating the payment machine to the front of the parking lot
  • creating an additional exit
  • replacing the chain link fence
  • adding plantings to the boulevard area

This project has been deferred until spring 2019. The deferral will provide time for further discussion of the options with the abutting property owners. Staff will be contacting these property owners early in 2019.
