Construction on Phase 2 of the William Halton Parkway in Oakville is underway this month.
With a growing population and increased traffic, Halton Region is extending the Parkway to create a new east-west corridor from Bronte Road (Regional Road 25) to Ninth Line (Regional Road 13).
The corridor, which runs parallel to the 407 and is aimed at diverting traffic from Dundas Street, is expected to be completed in December of 2024.
Phase 1 of the project, which started in December of 2018, was completed in November of 2020.
Phase 2 will see work done between Third Line and Neyagawa Boulevard and includes a four lane roadway, new roundabouts at Fourth Line and Burnhamthorpe Road, a new bridge over Sixteen Mile Creek, located just north of Lions Valley Park, new on-road bike lanes, multi-use pathways and sidewalks.
While Lions Valley Park will remain open during construction, there may be delays and the number of parking spots will be reduced.
