As the province plans for recovery, the town is beginning to slowly bring back services and reopen some public spaces. Provincial emergency orders and the town’s physical distancing by-law remain in effect. We must all continue to follow guidelines from Public Health officials.

As part of the Lakeshore Road Reconstruction and Streetscape Project, the town is reconstructing the Lakeshore Road Bridge over Sixteen Mile Creek.
From late January to December 2017, the bridge will be closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic. A detour route around the bridge will be provided via Kerr, Rebecca and Navy streets. Please note that Navy Street is now a two-way street between Lakeshore and Rebecca/Randall.
We appreciate your patience during construction and want to remind you that all businesses along Lakeshore Road on either side of the bridge, as well as the library, the theatre and Centennial Pool remain open and accessible during construction.
Once complete, the new bridge will include two travel lanes and bikes lanes. There will also be a wider pedestrian sidewalk with a barrier wall to separate the sidewalk and vehicular traffic. New pedestrian railings and lookouts will be included as well as LED lighting. The Lakeshore Road approaches to the bridge between Navy Street and Forsythe Street will also be reconstructed
For details about these projects, please visit the Lakeshore Road Bridge Reconstruction page. We will post additional information online as the projects progress. You can also contact ServiceOakville at 905-845-6601
