The City undertook a Schedule 'C' Municipal Class EA for transportation improvements on Ross Street (Toronto to Bayfield), Collier Street (Bayfield to Clapperton), Bayfield Street (Ross to Collier), and the intersection of Ross/Collier/Bayfield Streets.
Status: The Notice of Commencement was published in September 2016. The Notice of Completion is posted for the 30-day public review period commencing August 17, 2017.
Consultant: BT Engineering (BTE)
Study Level: Municipal Class EA Schedule 'C'
Purpose: The Multi-modal Active Transportation Master Plan (MMATMP) identified the need for implementing/improving active transportation infrastructure (bicycle and pedestrian facilities), intersection improvements and road widenings. The MMATMP completed Phases 1 and 2 of the Class EA process. These studies developed design alternatives based on the MMATMP recommendations to implement the above noted improvements and completed Phases 3 and 4 of the Class EA process.
Scope: The Study team looked at a number of design alternatives to address the above noted improvements and assess impacts on the physical, natural, social, cultural and economic environments. This process facilitated the decision-making process to identify a preferred alternative design solution.
Key Considerations: Property, driveway and tree impacts.
