Starting Monday, Feb. 25, 2013, Tremaine Road (Regional Road 22), between Dymott Avenue and Britannia Road (Regional Road 6), will be closed until April 19, 2013, while Halton Region installs a new watermain to serve existing and future communities in the Town of Milton.
“Closing a Regional road is never an easy decision,” said Halton Public Works Commissioner Mitch Zamojc. “We give careful consideration to motorist and worker safety, the availability of acceptable detour routes, local events and project duration. In this case, closing Tremaine Road for eight weeks was the best choice. The Region will make every effort to finish the work quickly to limit the inconvenience to local residents and commuters.”
An alternate northbound and southbound route is available on Bronte Street to the east of Tremaine Road. A map showing the affected roadway and vehicle detour route can be found on Halton’s website under Regional Construction Projects.
Motorists should expect delays when travelling through the area. Local access will be maintained at all times for emergency vehicles and for residents of Tremaine Road who live within the limits of the road closure.
The project is part of Building a Better Halton, the Region’s infrastructure construction plan for roads, water, wastewater, and waste management projects across Halton Region.
