Highway 8 Improvements Project

On April 12, 2021, Highway 8 will be completely closed between Bond Street North and Woodleys Lane until December 2022 as part of the Highway 8 Improvements project.

During this time, Highway 8 will receive the following upgrades:

  • Road reconstruction
  • Spencer Creek bridge replacement including associated retaining walls
  • Bike lane and shoulder installation
  • Sidewalk replacement in the same existing locations
  • Watermain installation/replacement
  • Storm sewer installation/up-sizing & replacement including outfall & headwall structures
  • Slope stability improvements
  • Retaining walls installation (south and north sides)
  • Street lighting pole relocation

Access during the project

  • During the first phase of construction, access to the Dundas Valley Golf & Curling Club will be maintained from the bottom of Highway 8 at Bond St N.
  • During the second phase of construction, access to Dundas Valley Golf & Curling Club will be maintained from the top of the Highway 8 hill.
  • Bruce Trail visitors will be unable to access the trail at Woodleys Lane and Highway 8 for the duration of the construction project.
  • Throughout the entire construction period, access to local properties east of the Spencer Creek bridge will be maintained from the bottom of Highway 8 at Bond St N and Park St W. As well, local properties west of the Spencer Creek bridge will be maintained from the top of the Highway 8 Hill.

Given the significance of this project, the City has launched a Highway 8 Improvements StoryMap to share key dates and detour details. Official construction dates will become available in the coming week.
