OAKVILLE, ON , June 28, 2011 /CNW/ - Starting Monday, July 4, the section of Neyagawa Blvd. between Dundas St. (Regional Road 5) and
Burnhamthorpe Rd. in Oakville will be temporarily closed until August 31, 2011 for the installation of a new large diameter watermain.
Access to the Sixteen Mile Sports Complex will remain open throughout
the construction via Dundas St. Access to King's Christian Collegiate
will also remain open via Burnhamthorpe Rd.
The road closure will impact commuters who use Neyagawa Blvd. to access
the 407ETR. Although the 407ETR entrance and exit ramps will remain
open, commuters are encouraged to use either Bronte Rd. or Trafalgar
Rd. to enter or exit the 407ETR, to avoid detours. Vehicles exiting or
entering the 407ETR at Neyagawa Blvd. will be required to follow a
detour directing traffic east along Burnhamthorpe Rd. and then to Sixth
Line to access Dundas St.
The closure of Neyagawa Blvd. is required to enable contractors to
complete the installation of the watermain efficiently and in a time
frame that reduces the long-term impact for commuters.
