Construction work on Burlington’s Tansley Bridge will result in overnight traffic delays this month for drivers in the surrounding area.

Improvements to the bridge are being made by Halton Region from June 5 to 26 and work on Dundas Street between Appleby Line and Tremaine Road will run Monday to Saturday, from 7:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m.

“Traffic will be reduced to one lane, alternating between directions,” said Halton Region. “Please drive safe.

The Region says work is being done to Dundas St. to accommodate growth in north Burlington and Oakville. More than 40,000 drivers use the critical east-west corridor daily.

Work being done to address future traffic demands and ensure safe travel for drivers include widening the street from four to six lanes, road resurfacing, new multi-use paths and sidewalks, new bus stops and shelters and upgraded stormwater maintenance infrastructure.

New traffic signals and streets lights, new on-road bike lanes, bridges and environmental protections measures will also be installed.

Work on the project began in 2021 and is expected to be completed in 2027.

This is phase 1 of the project. Phase 2, which is expected to begin in 2025, will see construction on Appleby Line to Northampton Blvd. and Northampton Blvd. to Guelph Line.

Phase 3, expected to start in 2025, will see construction work done on Guelph Line to east of Kern Road.
