The beginning of the Downtown Oakville transformation is about to begin, starting January 5, 2017.
The first major change will be the transitioning the one way streets to two way. The other major change will be the rebuilding of the Lakeshore Road bridge over the 16 Mile Creek.
On Thursday, January 5, 2017, Navy Street from Lakeshore Road East to Randall Street will become two way. The remainder of the plan is still detail design phase which should be completed by the end of 2017, and will identify all the necessary elements that will need to take place prior to implementing the conversion.
Implementation of the two-way conversion will include the following:
