Reminder - Lakeshore Road Closure and Detours

Posted on Friday June 24, 2016

As a reminder, in conjunction with the JBH Capital Redevelopment Project, the City of Burlington and the Region of Halton are reconstructing Lakeshore Road from the corner of Maple Ave. and Northshore Blvd. to the Skyway Treatment Plant.

Lakeshore Road will be closed from the corner of Maple Ave. and North Shore Blvd. to Joseph Brant Hospital’s access to the Halton McMaster Family Health Centre (HMFHC), and parking facility from July to September.

Detour plans have been developed to maintain access to the hospital, HMFHC, parking facility and the Brant Centre for staff, patients and visitors. 

Detour Routes (Starting July 4)

Eastbound traffic from the Hamilton and Niagara area is encouraged to usethe Eastport Dr. detour route.

Westbound traffic from Burlington, Oakville, and beyond can use either the Eastport Dr. or North Shore Blvd. detour route.  


The detour routes will cause a significant influx in traffic in the Brant Centre parking lot and in the parking facility area. For your safety, please walk on the designated yellow pathway beside the parking facility and on the sidewalk beside the Brant Centre when traveling to and from the hospital. Additional speed bumps, concrete curbs and signage will also be installed in affected areas.

The driveway at the loading dock will be accessible during the road closure via Eastport Rd.

HSR Bus Route Detour (Starting July 4)

The Hamilton Street Railway (HSR) Route 11 to Lakeshore Rd. will be using the detour route on North Shore Blvd. stopping in front of the hospital.
