Main Street West re-opened as reconstruction project completed

Posted on Monday November 30, 2015

News release -

With the reconstruction of Main Street West from Scott Boulevard to Bronte Street now completed, this section of the roadway has been re-opened to vehicular and pedestrian traffic. 

"On behalf of Milton Council, we are pleased to see another Town of Milton road construction project completed on budget and on time," said Town of Milton Mayor Gord Krantz. "With the recent completion of the Main Street Grade Separation, the east-west gateway through urban Milton is now up to current standards and provides improved traffic flow."

Main Street West between Tremaine Road (Regional Road 22) and Bronte Street was widened to support growth in the community. The reconstruction project is split into three phases. Phase 1, from Tremaine Road to Scott Boulevard, was realigned to intersect Tremaine Road to the south of the former intersection at Halton Region’s first roundabout, and was completed in 2011.

Phase 2 of the project, from Scott Boulevard to Bronte Street, includes:

  • Construction of two through lanes (one lane in each direction) and a centre shared turn lane
  • On-street bike lanes between Scott Boulevard and Whitmer Street 
  • New traffic signals at Scott Boulevard
  • Construction of a multi-use path/sidewalk on the south side of the road between Scott Boulevard and Bronte Street 
  • Lighting and landscaping 
  • Complete replacement of the local watermain and sanitary sewer with new services (Halton Region)
  • Phase 3 will include the construction of pedestrian tunnels through the CN embankment on the north and south sides of Main Street are anticipated to be constructed in 2017. The total project cost for phase 2 was $5.1 million. The project was awarded to Graham Brothers Construction Limited.

"Many thanks go out to residents, business owners and visitors in Milton for their patience during the temporary road closure," added Mayor Krantz. "Such projects require cooperation among many parties, so to produce as little traffic disruption as possible, this project was delayed by several days to accommodate emergency work by CP at the Steeles Avenue crossing, as well as final work by Halton Region on the Derry Road grade separation project in late August. Our innovative contract with the contractor also allowed us to complete the project on schedule despite the delayed start."
