The Town of Oakville has begun a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Study (Class EA) for improvements to Lakeshore Road West from Mississaga Street to Dorval Drive. The town's Official Plan, Livable Oakville, and the Active Transportation Master Plan both identified the need for improvements to meet the town's vision and growth demands to 2031. Review the study area map.
The Environmental Study Report (ESR) documents the rationale for the project, the background to the study, existing and future conditions within the study area, the planning, design and consultation process leading to the preferred alternative, anticipated positive and negative impacts, and proposed mitigation measures.

The purpose of the Lakeshore Road West Improvements study is to assess the current and future traffic conditions along this stretch of roadway and identify opportunities to improve road user safety and promote active transportation, such as walking and cycling, to ensure a healthy and vibrant community.
The study meets the requirements of a Schedule C project under the Municipal Engineers Association (MEA) Municipal Class EA document (October 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011 and 2015), which is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act.
On November 29, 2017, representatives from the town and its consultant held a Public Information Centre (PIC) Open House to share the preliminary preferred alternatives for Lakeshore Road West improvements, discuss next steps and gather public input. The business community was also invited to share input at a stakeholder meeting on November 2, 2017.
A PIC was also held on April 20, 2017 to provide an opportunity for residents and interested stakeholders to learn about and provide input and comments on the preliminary investigations, the need for improvements and the assessment of planning alternatives.
