More than $30 million will be spent building and maintaining critical infrastructure in Milton during the upcoming warm months, so be prepared for some delays and inconveniences.

The infrastructure includes road reconstruction, bike lanes, sidewalk expansion, asphalt improvements, intersection modifications, urbanization (curbs and gutters), storm sewer rehabilitation and bridge maintenance.

“The Town of Milton is investing over $32.2 million on our road networks in 2023 to build infrastructure that makes Milton a complete and connected community,” said Jill Hogan, commissioner, Development Services

“We know and understand that construction can be inconvenient, however, this is essential work that ensures critical infrastructure remains safe, in good condition, and able to meet the community’s needs now and in the future.”

The Town pointed to its most recent Citizen Engagement Survey to know that this type of infrastructure maintenance and development is important to local residents.

This year, Miltonians can expect road closures and lane restrictions on main and arterial roads and side streets. Regular operational maintenance on roads and sidewalks are ongoing in the community to keep residents safe, and promote a walkable and bicycle-friendly community.

During construction, residents are encouraged to plan travel in advance, consider alternate routes, follow signage and be patient while travelling in and around construction areas.
