Oakville’s Sixth Line Road Widening Project Aims to Improve Transportation Infrastructure for the Community
The Town of Oakville is improving travel along Sixth Line, an arterial roadway that provides an important north-south travel route for residents and visitors.
Using funding in part from the Canada Community-Building Fund, Oakville is widening Sixth Line to accommodate future growth, meet future travel demands, improve safety for all road users – motorists, cyclists and pedestrians – and help people get to where they need to be every day.
Work involves building out Sixth Line from a two-lane, rural cross-section road to a four-lane urbanized road with a centre median and on-road bike lanes. The work is being completed in two phases. Phase One (Dundas Street to Threshing Mill Boulevard) was completed in the summer of 2023.
Phase Two (Threshing Mill Boulevard to William Halton Parkway) will begin in spring 2024 after ongoing subdivision servicing and utilities relocations are completed. The ongoing utilities work includes the installation of sanitary sewers and watermains that are required to provide servicing for future residential lots.
Once utilities works are completed in spring 2024, the road widening work to William Halton Parkway will begin and continue into 2025.
