EA Process

This Study will follow the approved planning process for Group ‘B’ projects under the Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) for Provincial Transportation Facilities (2000). There will be opportunity for public input throughout the project.

Two Public Information Centres (PICs) will be held to provide the public and stakeholders with an opportunity to review and comment on the proposed improvements, alternatives considered, potential impacts and proposed mitigation measures. Newspaper notices will be published to advertise the date, time and location of each PIC. Please visit the study’s consultation page for more details about upcoming events.

Upon study completion, a Transportation Environmental Study Report (TESR) will be prepared and filed for a 30-day public review period. Newspaper notices will also be published at that time to explain the review process and identify locations where the TESR can be reviewed.

A detailed explanation of the Class EA Process for Provincial Transportation Facilities can be found on MTO’s website.
