Main Street West
Tremaine Rd. to Bronte St.

Project Details

Main Street West between Tremaine Road (Regional Road 22) and Bronte Street is being widened to support growth in the community. The roadway is designed as a four-lane thoroughfare with a centre median.

The project involves three phases:

  1. Phase 1 - Tremaine Rd. to Scott Blvd. - completed in 2011
  2. Phase 2 - Scott Blvd. to Bronte St. - completed in 2015
  3. Phase 3 - Pedestrian Tunnels - design by Town; construction managed by CN in 2018 (anticipated)

Phase 3 - Pedestrian Tunnels

Construction of pedestrian tunnels through the CN embankment on the north and south sides of Main Street will be designed by the Town of Milton and construction will be managed by CN (construction anticipated in 2018, pending CN's timeline).

Phase 1 - Tremaine Rd. to Scott Blvd.

This is the western section of the project. Main Street was widened and has been realigned to intersect Tremaine Road to the south of the former intersection. 

Also, Tremaine Road between Derry Road and Main Street was widened from two to four lanes. Halton's first roundabout is located at Tremaine Road and Main Street.

Phase 1 consisted of:

  • Construction of four traffic lanes with a central median, storm sewers and curbs
  • On-street bike lanes
  • Construction of multi-use path on both sides of the road.

Phase 2 - Scott Blvd. to Bronte St.

This phase of the project has completed an Environmental Assessment Study. Two Public Information Centres were held and several options were reviewed in light of comments that were received from regulatory agencies and members of the public.

Phase 2 consisted of:

  • Construction of two through lanes (one lane in each direction) and a centre shared turn lane
  • On-street bike lanes between Scott Blvd. and Whitmer St.
  • New traffic signals at Scott Blvd.
  • Construction of a multi-use path/sidewalk on the south side of the road between Scott Blvd. and Bronte St.
  • Lighting and landscaping
  • Complete replacement of the local watermain and sanitary sewer with new services by Halton Region
