Oxford County has initiated a 2024 update of its current 2019 Transportation Master Plan.

The Transportation Master Plan is a long-term strategic transportation planning document that lays out the County’s vision and goals for its transportation system over the next 20 years. The Transportation Master Plan will consider:

  • Population and employment growth in the County;
  • Accommodation of future transportation conditions, while also considering sustainable and multi-modal transportation solutions (e.g., promoting active transportation, transportation demand strategies, and public transportation over single-occupant vehicle trips); and
  • Specific needs of the County, including people and goods movement, along with agricultural mobility.


What's happening now?

Parsons Inc. has been retained by Oxford County to complete the Transportation Master Plan Update. Key objectives of the Transportation Master Plan Update include:

  • Assess existing and future transportation network conditions and performance, with consideration to travel demand and patterns;
  • Identify needs of the transportation system and develop policies to address them; and
  • Develop a safe, effective and financially viable integrated transportation system implementation plan that maximizes the use of existing infrastructure and promotes regional connectivity.

As part of the Transportation Master Plan Update, a corridor study of Oxford Road 4 will be completed. This corridor is a key transportation link between Highways 401/403 and the northern part of the County. Findings of this study will be incorporated into the Transportation Master Plan.

The Transportation Master Plan Update is being conducted in accordance with the Master Plan requirements of Phases 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (2000, as amended in 2007, 2011 & 2015), approved under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act.
