Trafalgar Road construction update - December 22, 2015

Tue, 22 Dec 2015

Road work on the northbound lanes of the Trafalgar overpass is continuing with the mild weather.

The Ministry of Transportation (MTO) is targeting a reopening of all lanes before the end of December; however, this may be delayed until early January if the weather is not suitable for completing final concrete work and paving operations.

The town will continue to communicate with MTO and Halton Region on the contractor’s schedule and will share updates with the public as they become available.

The Trafalgar Road overpass is in need of repair. To ensure the continued safety of this overpass, the following repairs are being done:

  • Repairs to the bridge deck, including repaving the portion of Trafalgar Road that passes over the bridge
  • Waterproofing the bridge deck to protect the concrete from moisture and salt damage to extend the life of the overpass
  • Repairs and improvements to the concrete portions of the bridge, including the bridge deck and the supporting walls and columns, and to the concrete areas between the road and the bridge

In addition to the repairs, additional enhancements are being made to improve accessibility and safety for pedestrians:

  • Widening both sides of the overpass by 0.3 metres to accommodate wider sidewalks for pedestrians
  • Allowing a 0.45-metre buffer zone between the sidewalk and the road to improve pedestrian safety
