2024 Transportation Master Plan


Oxford County has initiated the development of a Transportation Master Plan (TMP) that will define the County’s vision and goals for its transportation system over the next 20 years, from 2024 through to 2046.

The Plan will consider:

  • population and employment growth in the County;
  • accommodation of future transportation conditions, as well as sustainable and multi-modal transportation solutions (e.g., promoting active transportation); and,
  • specific needs of the County, including people and goods movement, along with agricultural mobility.


Key objectives

Parsons Inc. was retained by Oxford County to complete the Transportation Master Plan Update. Key objectives of the update were:

  • 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.
  • Develop a safe, effective and financially viable integrated transportation system implementation plan that maximizes the use of existing infrastructure and promotes regional connectivity.

The first phase of public consultation took place between March and October 2022. A second phase of public consultation took place from March 1 to April 11, 2023.


Have your say

Public participation and feedback is an important part of identifying the community’s transportation needs and priorities. In the first phase of public consultation (March to October 2022), we asked the community and other key stakeholders to share their transportation priorities. In the second phase of consultation, we asked for feedback on the draft recommendations that considered the first round of community input.

    Update: October 6, 2023

    Final Draft 2024 Transportation Master Plan available for review

    The Final Draft 2024 Transportation Master Plan goes before Oxford County Council on October 11, 2023. At Council's request, on July 12, 2023, the draft plan was posted for an additional 75-day informal comment before moving to the final approval stage.

    Under the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process for Master Plans, this last stage includes a final 30-day public review period before the document is accepted as the final 2024 Transportation Master Plan.

    The draft plan lays out Oxford County’s strategic roadmap for multi-modal transportation infrastructure and services through to 2046. Through various studies, research, data collections, and two extensive public consultation phases started in 2022, the draft plan puts forward strategies to address existing and future needs for:
    • the County’s road network;
    • active transportation, for instance, cycling and pedestrian routes;
    • goods movement, such as rail freight, trucking, etc.;
    • people movement, e.g., commuting infrastructure; and,
    • transportation system sustainability and new technologies, such as electric or autonomous vehicles.

    Although it considers a more than 20-year window for action, the master plan is intended to be revisited and updated on a five-year schedule.
