Nightly road closures on a section of Dundas St. to accommodate construction will result in traffic headaches for Burlington and Oakville commuters beginning next week.

Drivers on the busy route will be impacted over the next few weeks as Halton Region continues improvements to Dundas St. (Regional Rd. 5) with work on Tansley Bridge. A detour route will be in effect during nightly road closures.

Beginning weeknights next Monday (Nov. 7), Dundas St. will be temporarily closed from Sutton Dr. to Tremaine Rd.

Closures will take place Monday to Friday from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. the following mornings until Dec. 10.

“The project will address future traffic demands and provide safe travel options for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists,” says Halton Region.

Construction on the Dundas St. project, between Appleby Line (Reg. Rd. 20) and Tremaine Rd. (Reg. Rd. 22) in Burlington, began in June 2021.

Halton Region says the closure dates are subject to change and any changes will be communicated through the Dundas Street Improvements webpage as well as construction signs along Dundas.

Local access, access to businesses and emergency access will be maintained along Dundas St. at all times.

Drivers travelling through the area can expect delays. Traffic will be detoured (see detour map below) by temporary signage along Appleby Line, Derry Rd. (Reg. Rd. 7) and Bronte Rd. (Reg. Rd. 25).
