MUNICIPAL CLASS ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT

The Cities of Thorold and St. Catharines are currently undertaking a Class Environmental Assessment study for the reconstruction of St. David’s Road and Townline Road between Collier Road/ Burleigh Hill Drive and Front Street, bordering the Cities of St. Catharines and Thorold. The road is in poor condition and is without cycling amenities or consistent sidewalks.

In addressing the road reconstruction needs, the study is also considering: geometric and  operational improvements to the St. David’s Road and Townline Road intersection; improved pedestrian and cyclist amenities throughout the corridor; potential extension of Townline Road to Front Street; and options for an active transportation connection to the Welland Canals Parkway Trail. The project will also include recommendations for upgrades and replacement of underground services (watermain, storm and sanitary sewer).

The project is being completed as a Schedule “B” project in accordance with the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (October 2000, amended in 2007, 2011 & 2015).  As such, public and technical agency consultation will be a fundamental component in developing the study recommendations.

The first Public Information Centre (PIC) will be held to present and obtain information on the key issues and constraints within the study area and preliminary options under consideration. The PIC will be held as an informal “Open House” format with materials pertaining to the study on display and members of the project team on hand to answer questions and discuss issues related to the project.
