The Halton Region is taking steps in order to keep traffic moving, and improve safety, in the town of Milton.
The region will be making improvements to Guelph Line, from Derry Road to 1 km south of Conservation Road, Ward 1, in the town.
“Guelph Line (Regional Road 1) is a critical north-south corridor in [the] Halton Region, and these improvements will improve safety and accommodate travel demands in the area,” reads a construction update from the region.
According to the update, improvements will include:
- Province says trick-or-treating is safe in Halton
- Halton’s top health official warns against activities that can spread COVID-19
- New services added for busy Oakville Transit routes
- Reconstructing Guelph Line, from 1 km north of Derry Road to 1 km south of Conservation Road.
- Resurfacing Guelph Line, from Derry Road to 1 km north of Derry Road.
- The rehabilitation of an existing concrete culvert to maintain a state of good repair.
Construction is expected to start later this month and is expected to be completed by November of this year.
And in order for people to plan ahead and prepare for the construction, the Halton Region has outlined some things that residents should take note of.
Noise: Residents may encounter noise due to these regional improvements. However, work will be scheduled in accordance with local noise by-laws.
Dust and mud: There may be increased levels of dust and mud near the work site. Although, according to the update, the contractor is required to manage these impacts.
Traffic delays: The project may cause traffic delays, lane shifts or lane restrictions.
“We will make every effort to minimize any potential inconvenience,” notes the update. “Emergency vehicle access will be maintained at all times.”
Truck traffic: There may be increases in truck traffic while the construction is taking place.
Vibration: Residents may experience some vibration due to the work being done. Residents are advised to remove or secure objects on shelves and walls.
Erosion and sediment control: The regionwill be installing erosion and sediment control measures for the duration of the project. This will include tree protection fencing, with heavy-duty silt fabric around the perimeter of the project site.
Driveway access: Direct access to driveways may be restricted for short periods of time. However, the region will provide advance notice of any planned restrictions.
