The Class EA Study will evaluate traffic and connectivity needs, identify alternative road alignments, safety and operational improvements, land use implications, active transportation considerations, natural environment impacts and mitigation measures.
This notice signals the commencement of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Study. The Study process includes public and stakeholder consultation, development and evaluation of alternatives, an assessment of the impacts of the proposed improvements, and develop a preferred design in consultation with adjacent property owners, regulatory agencies, Indigenous communities, members of the local business community and the public. The Study is being carried out in accordance with the planning and design process for Schedule ‘B’ projects as outlined in the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (October 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011 and 2015), which is approved under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act.
