Highway 7 and Highway 15 Intersection Improvements

Transportation Environmental Study Report Addendum

[GWP 4084-16-00]

In 2020, the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) completed a Preliminary Design and Class Environmental Assessment (EA) Study for improvements to the intersections of Highway 7 / Highway 15 and Highway 7 / McNeely Avenue in the Town of Carleton Place (GWP 4084-16-00).

The Town of Carleton Place is developing a Transportation Master Plan and has identified changes to draft development plans and a new municipal road between McNeely Avenue and Findlay Avenue, north of Highway 7. These changes were not considered as part of the traffic analysis completed during the 2020 Preliminary Design for improvements to the highway.

As a result, the Town requested that MTO undertake an addendum to the 2020 Preliminary Design and EA Study. The purpose of this addendum is to review with the public the traffic impacts from the changes to development and the new municipal roadway, and to identify any required changes to the highway design as a result.

The 2020 Preliminary Design and EA Study was documented in a Transportation Environmental Study Report (TESR) which received environmental clearance in August 2020. The results of this study are documented as an Addendum to the 2020 TESR.  The TESR Addendum is available for a 30-day comment period from April 27, 2023 to May 26, 2023.

The current study is following the Environmental Assessment process for a Group ‘B’ project in accordance with the Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) for Provincial Transportation Facilities (2000), with the opportunity for public input throughout the project.

This website will be updated regularly, providing project and schedule updates and project documentation as it becomes available.
