The Region of Peel has completed the Schedule "C" Municipal Class Environmental Assessment study for the improvements to Bovaird Drive from Lake Louise Drive/Worthington Avenue to 1.45 kilometre west of Heritage Road in the City of Brampton (study area is shown on the map)..
The project team received input from interested stakeholders, the public and agencies, at two Public Information Centres. The team evaluated various road improvement alternatives and assessed the potential environmental effects of the proposed improvements and developed reasonable means to mitigate any adverse impacts.
Key Elements of the Recommended Design
The study recommends:
- the widening of Bovaird Drive to 3 lanes in each direction, with turning lanes at intersections, east of the proposed Halton-Peel Freeway
- the widening of Bovaird Drive to 2 lanes in each direction, with turning lanes at intersections, west of the proposed Halton-Peel Freeway
- an urban cross section which includes curb and gutter, sidewalk, multi-use path, street lighting and transit facilities
- streetscaping along Bovaird Drive including planting of trees and shrubs, where appropriate
