Municipal Class Environmental Assessment
Rehabilitation of The Gore Road, King Street to Patterson Sideroad, Town of Caledon
In 2004, the Region of Peel completed a Structural Assessment Study covering a 9.3 kilometre length of existing roadway on The Gore Road between King Street and Patterson Sideroad. The purpose of the Structural Assessment Study was to develop alternative approaches to road rehabilitation and to develop a recommended rehabilitation plan to implement throughout the project limits.
The Region of Peel is now commencing a project to implement the recommendations of the Structural Assessment Study, and to formalize the planning and engineering design procedures required to complete the rehabilitation of the subject sections of The Gore Road. This project is being planned under Schedule B of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment.
Implementation of the plan through detailed design and construction activities will include the following:
Rehabilitation of the gabion basket retaining wall north of Old Church Road;
Adjust vertical profiles at five locations north of King Street to improve stopping sight distances;
Add auxiliary left turn lanes at the intersection of Gore Road and King Street;
Rehabilitate the existing roadway by pulverizing and overlaying with asphalt;
Replace guide rails and culverts, where required; and,
Address identified slope stability issues, through re-grading of slopes (where feasible) or alternate slope stabilization techniques.
Public input and comment are invited for incorporation into the planning and design of this project and will be received until March 13, 2006. Subject to comments received and the receipt of necessary approvals, the Region of Peel intends to proceed with the planning, design and construction of this project. Construction activities are scheduled to commence in Fall 2006, with completion in Spring 2007.
