Halton Region is seeking public input on its preliminary preferred design for the Norval bypass.
The proposed bypass will re-route traffic from Winston Churchill Boulevard to a new four-lane road west of Norval. It's intended to reduce truck traffic on Hwy. 7 through the village.
The Region has been studying several options for routes and intersections with existing roads since 2020. After public consultation, the Region has put forward a preferred option, based on traffic flow, ability to accommodate future traffic demands, environmental impacts and other factors.
That option will see a roundabout connect Winston Churchill Boulevard with a realigned 10 Sideroad. The roundabout will also connect with the new bypass, which will link up with Hwy. 7 at the bottom of the hill leading from Georgetown into Norval.
The Region will be accepting comments on the bypass until Feb. 28. Anyone wishing to provide feedback can take a survey on Halton Region’s website.
