Peterborough County Notice of Study Commencement - County Road 18 Bridgenorth Causeway Link (Bridgenorth By-Pass) Environmental Assessment Addendum

The County of Peterborough has initiated an Environmental Assessment (EA) Addendum for the original Municipal Class EA (formerly described as the Bridgenorth Bypass) that was completed in 2006. The project is being described in the EA Addendum as the “County Road 18 Bridgenorth Causeway Link Environmental Assessment”. This future corridor will provide a new roadway to improve traffic capacity for the existing Ward Street section of County Road 18 in the settlement area of Bridgenorth.

The purpose of the new roadway link will be to increase road capacity to meet forecast traffic demand, and provide opportunities for active transportation by providing a direct link to the James A. Gifford Causeway. The EA Addendum will complete the 10 year review of the project. The project continues to be identified in the County’s Transportation Master Plan (TMP) with implementation beyond the 20 year planning horizon. The EA Addendum will reflect the County’s Active Transportation Master Plan (ATMP) and changes in Provincial environmental legislation, consider gateway treatments and other issues, and review property protection requirements that may have changed since the completion of the original EA.

The first Public Information Centre (PIC) meeting will be scheduled for this project in the early winter of 2017. A PIC notice will be published at that time. Persons wishing to be included on the study mailing list should contact the Study Consultant below. Notices and updates will be posted on the County of Peterborough web site

http://www.county.peterborough.on.ca/.

There is an opportunity at any time during the EA process for interested persons to provide comments. Any comments received pertaining to the study will be collected under the Environmental Assessment Act and, with the exception of personal information, will become part of the public record.
