Bolton Queen Street Corridor Study

The Bolton Queen Street Corridor Study looked at ways to improve the downtown core of Bolton. This study was a response to changes in transportation and infrastructure policy that have altered traffic activity around Queen Street/Highway 50. The goal of the study was to ensure the area is viable for multiple modes of transportation, spur economic growth and development, improve housing options and promote community vibrancy.
