EA Process

EA process

The TESR Addendum 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.

A Public Information Centre (PIC) was held on November 22, 2022, to provide an overview of the Preliminary Design Recommended Plan for the impacted areas, and to present any changes to the design or preliminary mitigation measures identified through the TESR Addendum process.

Upon completion, a TESR Addendum will be prepared and filed for a 30-day comment period.

Following approval of the TESR Addendum, MTO and WSP will continue the Detail Design and Class Environmental Assessment Study and update the project based on the recommendations of the Addendum. During the Detail Design, there will be additional opportunities for public participation.

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