A busy central Oakville street is getting a facelift.

Kerr St., the main roadway through Kerr Village, is being resurfaced.

It’s all part of the Town of Oakville’s Annual Road Resurfacing and Preservation Program, which is aimed at rehabilitating and improving the driving surfaces of Oakville’s roadways.

Work being done includes the resurfacing of Kerr St. from Speers Rd. to Lakeshore Rd. W.

Road users should expect delays and increased traffic on Kerr St. and side streets during construction. There will be temporary road and sidewalk restrictions within the construction work zone.

Local residents may experience dust, noise and other inconveniences while the work is being done.

Work on the street will be done Monday to Friday, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. A reminder that occasional work on weekends may be needed as required.

Unless noted otherwise, local access to the street will be maintained at all times.

Work is typically completed in six phases:

  1. Localized concrete repairs
  2. Maintenance hole adjustments
  3. Full or partial depth milling
  4. Base asphalt placement
  5. Surface asphalt placement
  6. Sod restorations (fall)

Storeowners and homeowners are reminded to remove items located within the town’s property limits before construction starts. This includes irrigation systems. The town will not be responsible for any damage to privately owned items on the town’s property.

The town’s annual road resurfacing program typically runs from mid-May through to the end of October.

Recently completed resurfacing work done by the town includes Lakeshore Rd. W., from Dorval Dr. to Forsythe St., and Lakeshore Rd. W., from Fourth Line to Third Line.
