Downtown Transportation and Streetscape Study

Following extensive public consultation, the Downtown Transportation and Streetscape Study (DTS) was approved by Council in April 2015. The DTS is part of the Downtown Plan.

The DTS assessed the current traffic and roadway conditions in downtown Oakville and created recommendations to enhance the roadways, beautify streets, improve pedestrian/cycle ways and revitalize the Towne Square, by introducing design standards as well as increasing connectivity, mobility and accessibility.
