Every year the Town of Halton Hills works to improve road safety, and 2019 is no different. 

The town recently announced that this spring Halton Hills will commence road reconstruction and road resurfacing on select streets.

This year, the annual construction project has been dubbed ‘Roads 2019’ and will also consist of culvert replacement and intersection improvements.

“Each year, the Town’s Pavement Management and Capital Works program renews and improves infrastructure across Halton Hills,” reads a recent press release.

This year, the Pavement Management Program will focus on upgrading roads in Georgetown specifically.

The goal of this project is to ensure that roads are safe and in good condition for the town’s residents.

“The Town of Halton Hills is continuing its efforts to keep our roads in good repair,” Halton Hills Mayor Rick Bonnette said in the release. “I recognize the disruption that comes with this type of construction but continual investment in our infrastructure is one way we manage our assets and extend their longevity.”

The following streets will have minor reconstruction or road resurfacing completed this season.

Residents who live on or near affected streets will be notified of construction. They will also be advised that they may experience some disruptions.

In addition to keeping roads safe, this construction program is also important when it comes to maintaining the community’s quality of life overall.

“Roads 2019, our infrastructure construction program for Halton Hills roads and bridges is our blueprint for maintaining our infrastructure,” said Chris Mills, Commissioner of Transportation & Public Works. “This work is a necessary investment that upholds and improves the community’s quality of life, meeting the needs of all users.”
