The Regional Municipality of Peel has completed a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) study for improvements to the Derry Road / Goreway Drive Intersection, in the City of Mississauga. The approximate limits of the project area are illustrated on the map.
The study was conducted in compliance with the planning and design process for Schedule ‘B’’ projects as outlined in the Municipal Engineers Association, Municipal Class Environmental Assessment document (October 2000, as amended in 2007 and 2011), which is approved under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. The Class EA process included consultation with regulatory agencies, landowners, and the public, assessment of the impacts, and identification of reasonable measures to mitigate any adverse impacts. A Project File maintained during the study is available for public review for a period of 40 calendar days (starting on August 7, 2012 and ending September 15, 2012).
