Trafalgar Road Construction project’s genesis was back in 2015, when it was decided that Trafalgar from Leighland Blvd to Hays Blvd needed rehabilitation. From 2016 to 2019 detailed plans were drawn up. Utilities were relocated from 2018 to 2019 and in November 2019 Halton Region award the construction contract. The construction is expected to last until December 2021.
