road closed detour signs
Starting Thursday, January 5, you'll notice some changes when driving through downtown Oakville. Navy Street between Lakeshore and Rebecca/Randall has been permanently converted to a two-way street.

As well, the town's first pedestrian crossover will be added at Navy and Church.

Later this month, the Lakeshore Road Bridge over Sixteen Mile Creek will be closed until late fall for reconstruction. As a result, Lakeshore Road between Navy and Forsythe will be closed to pedestrian and vehicular traffic for the duration of the project.

A detour around the bridge will be in place. Stores, the Central Library, the Oakville Centre for Performing Arts and Centennial Pool will all remain open during construction.
