After two phases of reconstruction, Oakville residents and downtown businesses will be happy to know that the transformation of Lakeshore Road East is now complete and the road has re-opened to vehicles, cyclists and shoppers.
It’s been a long stretch since the $20 million project began in April 2019; a project that negatively impacted several residents and businesses due to construction along the busy road.
Now that the project has come to fruition, the newly revamped Lakeshore Road will feature additional space for pedestrians and cyclists with a modern touch, along with public Wi-Fi access and electric vehicle charging stations.
“The Lakeshore Road Reconstruction and Streetscape Project couldn’t have been completed without the residents, businesses and visitors who have worked through the construction process, participated in programming and whose patience and cooperation have assisted in bringing this project to an on-time, on budget, conclusion,” read the City’s website.
Despite the completion of this project, some additional construction will continue to take place on Trafalgar Road without affecting Lakeshore Road’s recent reopening.
