It is also suggested that you advise your clients or third parties with whom you are associated with about the closures. TO2015 (Pan Am Games organizer), the Region of Halton and the Towns of Milton and Oakville will be issuing public information notices and electronic signs will be placed in strategic positions on roadways approaching the affected areas in the weeks and days prior to the events.”
