Have a question or want to know more about the Burloak Drive Grade Separation project?

Burlington and Oakville residents will have an opportunity to do so at an in-person public engagement session by Metrolinx on Thursday, Sept. 21 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Burlington Public Library Central Branch in the Centennial Room.

Construction is already underway at the joint initiative between the City of Burlington and Oakville that will see an underpass built to separate vehicle and rail movement on

The underpass will enhance public safety in advance of GO Transit’s planned 15-minute all-day service on the Lakeshore West GO line, which will see up to eight trains crossing Burloak Drive every hour, in addition to regular VIA and freight trains.

The addition of turn lanes, sidewalks, bike lanes and improved connectivity for active modes of travel will also be included in this project.

The project is estimated to be completed by mid-2026.

Residents can also share their feedback now online until Sept. 29. Visitors can view a video presentation and submit questions for the Metrolinx team to review and respond.

The Q&A period will close at 5 p.m. on Sept. 29. To view the video presentation and submit questions, see here.

Registration is not required for the in-person event. The Central Branch is located at 2331 New St., Burlington.
