Burlington and Oakville motorists should be prepared for a slower drive along a portion of Dundas Street beginning today.

Lane restrictions will be in effect between Appleby Line and Tremaine Road after the afternoon rush hour. This will allow for ongoing work on the widening and rehabilitation of the Tansley bridge structure.

Dundas Street is a critical major east-west corridor with more than 40,000 daily road users. Since 2012, Halton Region has been making improvements to Dundas Street to accommodate growth in north Burlington and Oakville.

These improvements will address future traffic demands and provide safe travel options for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists and include: new traffic signals and street lights, new on-road bike lanes, environmental protection measures, sidewalks with barriers, new bus shelters, new bridges, and upgraded stormwater management infrastructure.

Equipment for the Regional Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS) will also be installed. The ATMS is a traffic signal control system that enables real-time signal adjustments to save time, reduce emissions and improve safety for motorists.

Improvements will be completed in several phases:

  • Appleby Line to Tremaine Road – Construction started in Spring 2021
  • Tremaine Road to Bronte Road – Anticipated construction start in Summer 2022
  • Appleby Line to Northampton Blvd. – Anticipated construction start in 2023
  • Northampton Blvd. to Guelph Line – Anticipated construction start in 2023
  • Guelph Line to west of Kerns Road – Anticipated construction start in 2025
