The Town of Oakville owns a network of 16,500 street lights, utilized to illuminate its roadway system. The street lights are monitored through an adaptive control system which allows for remote monitoring and improved asset management as staff receive automated notifications of maintenance issues. It should be noted that the Region of Halton manage street lights on regional roads. General repairs and maintenance activities for the street light network are performed by Oakville Hydro.

Lighting improvements and infill requests

The following intersections are being addressed as part of this year's street lighting improvement program:

  • Dunedin Road at Brookmill Road

LED conversion program

A two phase LED street light conversion program was developed and approved as part of the 2016 Capital Budget process. Phase 1 focused on the conversion of cobra and square head style light fixtures and Phase 2 which occurred in 2017, involved the conversion of decorative head light fixtures.

The only remaining area of LED Conversion is the Downtown BIA. This area had been deferred until such time as the public consultation and detailed design associated with the Lakeshore Streetscape Stdy was complete. The conversion of this area (approximately 200 fixtures) will occur in conjunction with the Lakeshore Road Reconstruction and Streetscape project, which is expected to commence in 2019.
